New book: Harry Childers

I am working on a modernized, retelling of Byron’s Childe Harold.  The dedicatory poem becomes song lyrics.  Having fun if nothing else which does not mean that I am not in earnest.

To Bryony

 

In all the places where I will be straying,

And I am going far,

All the lovely women I will see,

Will  never have your dark charms

 

No one will believe how beautiful you are

No one will believe how beautiful you are

Sparkling in the pure moonlight

 

The words of devotion your love inspires

The lyrics I that I sing

enshrine your enchanting memory

in hearts across the wide world

 

No one will ever believe how beautiful you are

No one will ever believe how beautiful you are

Sparkling in the pure moonlight

 

 

If all you will accept is my friendship,

and won’t be my lover,

then let me stand by your side

to guard and guide you through

 

No one will ever believe how beautiful you are

No one will ever believe how beautiful you are

Sparking in the pure moonlight.

 

 

 

 

 

Note to Bryony- Do you remember when we were children, and I asked, ‘Did it hurt when you fell from heaven?”

Now I ask heaven to help me tell the world how beautiful you are.  Harryharry childers book cover final
