Tabatha Yeatts has posed this next to impossible challenge of matching up a poem to a song. She is really good at it. I, on the other hand, am not. I listen to very little new music. So I have nothing coming into my brain to help me out here. BUT, today when I saw one of Tabatha's poems, I thought about some of my Newfoundland music.
I finally found a matchup for a song and a poem. I've selected Tabatha Yeatts' poem,
The Old Ship to go with a song from Newfoundland (as I'm partial to this music and topic!)
Away from the Roll of the Sea
And Irene Latham's poem Adélie Seeking Adélie
to go with Dark Eyed Sailor (lyrics here).
They are both kind of like about waiting for a guy... the right one. Only one is a guy with a white-ringed eye and the other is dark eyed.
Scoop 3:And I have the other two postcards that I received through Amy Souza's exchange to display - Top right from Amy Souza, top left from Jone Rush MacCulloch, bottom right is mine, and bottom right is from Lisa Kilhefner.
Oooh, and a bit of music to matchup with Jone's jellyfish poem on her postcard! Under the Sea!
Floating creatures the jellyfish
One common dish
Something that sells
Passive drifters known as smack
They won't attack
Just like a veil
