September Music 14

For the month of September I am going to choose a piece of music or song and write a poem or alternative version. Jane Dougherty is doing a September Stanza here. And Kat Myrman is doing September a poem a day Here.

Today’s piece of Music is Kashmir, originally performed by Led Zeppelin, but performed here by Bond in classical mode.

My interpretation.

I am all seeing, ageless and knowing.

I see the myriad stars and rivers flowing.

Spice travels along my winding roads

Beasts of burden bow beneath their loads.

I am the mountain peaks covered in snow

The valleys green and lush below.

I am master of all I survey

Even nature, I bend to my way.

I am all seeing, ageless and knowing.

I see the myriad stars and rivers flowing.

Master of time and space,

I am everything, beauty and full of grace.

And just for good measure the glorious original.

    I don’t think I ever knew what Led Zeppelin looked like! Not surprising that generation are nearly all dead now! Didn’t know this one. Thanks for posting it πŸ™‚

    Willow, I love your poem! Will come back and play the song tomorrow when I get a chance. (Not sure I’m familiar with that particular Led Zeppelin song.)

    Wonderful, Willow. I like Bond’s interpretation (bummer no video with the music) and your words are lovely…
    I think of my husband any time I hear a Led Zep song as he loved them.
