Description: A madrigal is a type of song that originated in the 14th century. They came to England last. Many English madrigals had "fa, la, la's."
Because They Were Beautiful -------------------------------------------
We used to make up madrigals
just because they were beautiful
not caring that they were passť.
I remember your mouth opened into a perfect O
Singing "fa, la, la".
I longed to kiss you so much,
but I couldn't commit that heresy
because your voice made the nightingale
sound like Bob Dylan,
and your face was so serene
that a sunset looked like a massacre
This is the most flattering thing I've ever read! Just kidding of course. Ah, where to begin? I read this because it had so few comments on it, yet I find it hard to comment on other than to say that it is great, a sentiment that I have managed to stretch into many lines.
your poem sounds sad... like something was lost, and someone wants to find it again. The wording of your poem...Yes, could go in many direction...but that is what one of the translations, that I thought of. The other one sounds dirty..and Well, I aint' going there.... No offense towards you or your poem.
Oh yeah!! I love your comparisons....You take things that are undeniably beautiful and turn them into pure ugly...LOL! This is serious and funny and just plain made me happy....I kept hearing the little song "I'm Joxer the mighty.." (yeah, I admit I have watched Xena...people say I look like her.) LOL!! Not quite a madrigal but it reminded me of that....Oh thanks for this one!!
