Monday’s Rune: dVerse Music Quadrille

Lynda Lee Lyberg caught me at the dVerse bar today thinking of a poem about the mavens of music from the days of my time. While I must bow to the discipline of a mere 44 words, I will eventually make a much longer tribute to the quad of this week’s Quadrille. For today—this:

To Carly, Carole, Joni, and Linda

Music, Ladies! Making music was your life.
It’s been seventy years more
since you made your way writing, singing,
and playing for your sake and ours.

With Anticipation I’ll let Tapestry tell me
When Will I Be Loved since I see
Both Sides Now.

Look both ways and try, try, try to see all sides.
Mind the gaps when the beautiful ladies sing.
It’s where the love is.

Note: Maybe some young ‘uns don’t know that Carly Simon, Carole King, Joni Mitchell, and Linda Ronstadt were literal folk and rock stars for more than sixty years.

    1. Thanks, Dale. I’d not seen that post. Nor did I know of the challenge. Interesting that I got two by accident. I just finished “Girls Like Us,” a bio of all but Linda. 🙂

      1. No, I know you were not around then 😉 It was a series of five or six posts. See, Linda could not have made my list because all the women had to write their own songs as well as have a presence and influence. It was so hard to choose.
        Anyway, enough about me. I really liked your quadrille! 🙂

  1. Really damn clever bill, you’re not only got the ladies names but you got them connected to their most famous songs. Well done!

  2. “anticipation. I’ll let Tapestry tell me, When Will I Be Loved, since I see Both Sides Now.”
    I liked these, don’t hear them any more. I guess I could on the TV Music channels. But I’m not familiar with the Tapestry song.
