Email Poem | Today's Poetry

 The Stock In Wood
Although miss we did that year when things
Where free minds roamed in songs they'd sing
Of Peace not War, of Love not Hate
Venture we do back to this date

Hendrix ruled as Janis did
On stage performed what race forbid
Bringing change with music theirs
Stop, listen to whats now shared

Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young
Played their part this great foursome
Would leave their mark heard by many
The young and old, some barely twenty

Jefferson Airplane would too take flight
Bringing White Rabbit to black and white
Another song sung to bring peace
To minds seeking a pill at least

Havens sang his Freedom song
Bringing his take to what was wrong
Back then as still holds true today
Where prejudice within us stays

Grateful Dead too brought to life
As would Canned Heat another slice
Of 69 the Year when Love
Was free for all and much thought of

Joe Cocker and Country Joe
Whose Fish too came with minds to blow
As other acts too would follow
In rain and mud followers wallowed

Carlos Santana and Ten Years after
As grass was smoked and rolled with laughter
Bringing escape if for three days
Where work was thought a life enslaved

The WHO also played this year
Credence Clear Water they too appeared
Music theirs bringing revival
To souls searching dancing theirs tribal

So many more but just these few
Bring to a close as these days drew
A year where all came together
Mankind in music, racisim weathered
