Stevie Wonder 70

Stevie’s turned seventy
How can that be?
I thought him much older
Much older than me
Reams of great lyrics
Like hymns from the bees
They say you are blind
But yet you can see
McGuinness is strumming
Some tunes from the hill
A lark stops to listen
While Wexford is still
Oh lest I forget this
The sun lost it’s shine
The day that the heavens
Took witty John Prine
Dean Jonathan Swift
Sat in his boat
Lilliput dazzled
While he was afloat
We feel so important
Yet we’re really quite small
A tiny wee speck
In the scheme of it all
Summer is here
Tho’ a northern breeze blows
Cooling the whins
As fawns wait for does
Creedo was spinning
He played Bob again
His five millionth song
Some man with the pen
I’d say he’s now writing
With tears in his eyes
Not gloating on stardom
Or famed Nobel prize.

And the times they a-changin’……!
