Good news, everyone!

August 11th, 2009 (08:47 am)

In "A Poem Every Day" news, I recently got one of the nicest surprises I've had in ages. Acclaimed filksinger Clif Flynt was sufficiently amused by one of my poems that he decided to set it to music! As it happens, it's one that I'd thought of as a song, and as you'd expect Clif went in a *completely different direction* with it. And it's great fun. Clif played around with the lyrics and added a terrific chorus, and warns that he's not through tinkering with it yet, as he's been known to minorly rewrite his own songs every time he sings 'em.

The poem in question is "Crossroads," and the MP3, posted with Clif's kind permission, is here.

Thanks again, Clif!
