“To study music, we must learn the rules. To compose music, we must forget them.” Nadia Boulanger
Or if you’re like me, you never really understood the rules of music in the first place. I was confused to be referred to as a songwriter and yet it’s true I’ve come up with 18 original lullabies. About these lullabies. . .
Here Is My Lullaby, by Carrie/The Blankie
How does any creativity get done? I’m struggling, I think I’m the only one
looking at an empty page, I might not be the sage To write a lullaby – at least this one
The paper is mocking me – blankly staring back
I think I’m in the groove but I haven’t come up with jack
Maybe if I pace the music will appear; A sweet melody that’s soothing to the ear
This happens all the time, I won’t give up those rhymes. The process isn’t helped by all my fear.
I want to sing to you; help you to settle down
It may not be Mozart ; but I think it’s a sweet way to end a blog
Maybe if I pray the music will appear; A tender tune that’s worth your while to hear
Here is my lullaby, Now I shall say goodbye
. . . . Consider yourself tucked in, my dear
