Colonel Bogey, Sir !

Colonel Bogey, Sir !
Copyright VictorSluder1997

Colonel, I hear the distant drums,
Boom - booms, tat - tats and rum - tum - tums.
Somewhere, go heroes marching,
And in the music, their being becomes !

Trumping, oh hear the " Tah - Tah - Tah " !
Trombones : " Doo - wah, Doo - wah - wah - wah " !
Woodwinds, how high their singing,
Above the tuba's " Pah - room - pah ! Pah - pah " !

Throughout the years, whenever the deed was done,
Before the fact, before the act was yet begun,
As now, with music to lead the cheers,
The path was set, the task was met, the prize was won.

So, Colonel, I hear the distant dreams
Arching through all the music seems,
Marching, tat - tats and rum - tums,
And, Colonel Bogey, the closer, it comes !

How Deep A Night
CopyrightVictorSluder1990
Adaptation and plug - in lyric for Chopin Opus 10,#3

So deep is the night in which I sleep,
That I but dream I dream the dreams I keep,
Or so to seem.
No one near me here to hear me call your name,
Only I hear me cry.
: Deep is the night of no reply, of no return,
And wondering the why, so dark and deep!
Here your smallest light would blind me,
But no light of love can find me,
Here where all fool - dreamers fall, Aha!
"Yet more!", say I, "Wherefor more?", say I,
Wheresofor, say I,
1) "Where are you?" :
2) "How deep a night, the lovely light of love can die?"
