Prelude, Opus 1 to 4, Coda


Young Younger Youngest


Prelude stanza B. Dylan’s Forever Young:

“May you grow up to be righteous

may you grow up to be true

may you always know the truth

and see the lights surrounding you

may you always be courageous

stand upright and be strong

and may you stay Forever Young.”


Opus #1 to # 4

YOUNG Dumb and Full of Numb

teen years some numb to death’s reality

fearless wise guy filled with adventure

awareness of Mother Nature’s duality

guilty in confessional of thoughts impure

YOUNGER Than That Baby Fat

playground round and round in a whirl

as high up as I can get on the swings

interest grows between boy and girl

gluttonous consumption of sweet things

YOUNGEST Boy Baby Blessed

third boy in a row from Ma I know

she had 5 Cesarean births in all

fun with brothers and sisters in the snow

sometimes scared to walk down the hall

YOUTHFUL Years Gone in a Flash

School memories of two orders of nuns

Sisters of St. Joseph and Mercy were the ones

CODA by Bob Dylan

“Look out the saints are comi’n through

and it’s all over now Baby Blue.”
