I was reading Robert Frost's poetry. I got the impression that he was a bad poet and his poems were bad poetry. But "Mending Wall" was good for me to read."Something there is that does's love a wall" . . . "Elves". I borrowed it from the library with the rose garden which is a landmark of our neighborhood. I also borrowed a book for my Father called "Turtles All the Way Down" which seemed like pulp fiction for teenagers as my Father described it.
I looked at the garden then I went on with my walk. I was in the mood to sing and to whistle. I sung Bob Marley's "Redemption Song". "Cause none of them-a-can-a-stop-a-de-time" . . . "How long shall dey kill our prophets, vile ve stand aside and look? Ooh!"
I sang it and whistled the tune. "These songs of Freedom." I have a feeling that Bob Marley had a good heart. I heard he became a Christian before his death. He was indeed a Legend. His songs give me goosebumps just like the Odyssey does. Homer. From Jamaica. "These Songs of Freedom."
Then I witnessed another battle between the sparrows and the pigeons. They were fighting over an old house with a wild overgrown garden. The pigeons collected and were defending the garden and the sparrows attacked. They were darting back and forth and surveying the field. Then they called for reinforcements and more sparrows and more pigeons came and I saw a pigeon leaning on the gutter and looking down and he was trapped and cornered and I told the pigeon to "dive." Then the pigeons dived down out of my sight to and it seemed to me that the pigeons were transformed into doves and I was happy. Then I walked away.
I was happy so I whistled another song. "Zip-a-de dooh-dah! Zip-a-dee-ay! My, O my, what a wonderful day!" It is from The Song of the South
which is controversial because some people think it is racist for portraying blacks as happy and not miserable in their condition. I don't think Disney even sells the movie anymore and that is only available used. I hope this video is legal to watch, I do not know how to tell if it is. I imagine since it wasn't taken down it is probably legal.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6bWyhj7siEY&feature=youtu.be
The kind of day when you can't open your mouth without a song jumping out of it. I want to bring those days back to my neighborhood. We are working on it, aren't we. We are all praying for that for our neighborhoods and our cities and our states and our Countries and our World. It is a secular song and not a sacred one. But even secular songs are songs of praise to the good God.
