The Wanderer

What is she like?
I was told—
she is a
melancholy soul.

She is like
the sun to the night;
a momentary gold.

A star when dimmed
by dawning light;
the flicker of
a candle blown.

A lonely kite
lost in flight—
someone once
had flown.

On this day in music history: January 31, 1967 - John Lennon will purchase a vintage nineteenth century circus poster from an antique shop in Sevenoaks, Kent, UK. It will inspire Lennon to write the song “Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite”. Lennon finds the poster while browsing in the shop, while a break from making the promotional film for “Strawberry Fields Forever”. Most of the songs lyrics will be taken directly from the poster. The Beatles will begin recording “Kite” on February 17, 1967 during the sessions for “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”. The song will start off simply, but grows in complexity as recording progresses. Wanting to create the sonic atmosphere of a circus, producer George Martin will look for a calliope to play on the recording. When all he finds are ones that are automated, the sounds will be created by using the studios’ Hammond organ as well as transcribing tapes from the Abbey Road sound effects library, that are incorporated into the final recording. The track will be completed and mixed on March 31, 1967.

Bound around a sticky hand
that weaves
between the sky and sand
Wires for veins
Pliable bones made of soft wood splintering against fragile skin stretched over sighing bones
Ribs shaking, laughing through salt spray tears and Autumn breath
Tied together with strings and paper cuts
A severed tail follows it as
The Sun sinks low
Torn up hands hastily return to pockets in trousers in houses on the coast
The kite is free
But alone
And has nowhere to go

My soul is a lone little kite
Lost in the wind of hundred years
My heart is a lone little flower
Grown in the field of hundred winters
My mind is a lone little bird
Flying through the whirlwind of fears
My dream is a lone little fish
Swimming through the oceans of tears
So don’t expect any glory from me
I got left no trace of sanity
