Rock Me


Rock me outta here
Rock me from crazy to sane

Put me in a summer night
watching fireflies play tag
while moonbeams wash the willow's hair

Rock me outta here
Rock me from kettle drums to kettle on the stove

Put me in the mountains
where summer nights are sweater nights
where the wind chime's notes knit a sweater for my soul

Rock me outta reality
Rock me from crazy to sane
Rock me home

~Nara Malone

This is my contribution to G-Man's rockin' Friday 55. Drop by to see what others wrote or to join the fun yourself. G, I hear you're in my neck of the woods this week. You picked the best weekend of the year to visit.

  2. I really like the repetition in your poem, Nara. I think we all could use a bit of rocking from crazy to sane sometime. Smiles!

  5. ...she had to look up Billy Squire's song! I either feel really old or really young :P

    "while moonbeams wash the willow's hair" ... is totally brilliant!

  6. Echoing Margaret on Billy Squire...sigh. In the Dark is a fave, and it has that same rocking beat that also carries great sadness underneath--crazy is very wearing, a heaviness on the back, and rocking the hell away from it definitely works for me. My favorite line in this is "...moonbeams wash the willow's hair..." that is just pure music.

  7. I love the line, "rock me crazy to sane." And to be where summer nights are sweater nights. We have our fair share of those. But, alas, summer has flown on a mean north wind. Much to like here.

  12. Like the rhythm to this poem, the sort of dizzying call to insanity and back to sanity to start again. I like your writing sytle
