A Little Il Volo Poetry by Sandi Eyman


Here are three poems I wrote about Il Volo.  I hope they are worthy of the Flight Crew.  They are Senryu (a type of haiku), so it will be a format not familiar to some of our readers.

Il Volo

Three Italian guys
   attentive, humorous, and kind
      once boys…now men

Gian, Igna, Pero
   exquisite voices
      smooth, lyric, strong

Velvet, silk, brocade
   voices…
      like ribbons entwined

                      ~~~

‘Twas The Night

I have a need to post this poem I adapted (mangled) in 2013.  It’s my favorite for obvious reasons.   Yes…I plan to post it every year.  So, for the fourth time…

twas-the-night

 

 ‘Twas the night before Christmas when all through the villa,
not a creature was stirring, not even Godzilla (couldn’t think of another rhyme)

When, what to my wondering eyes should I hear, (I take liberties)
but a song and three Boys, not tiny, but Dear! (lots of liberties)

I saw Piero, Gianluca and Ignazio too,
up to my rooftop, to my living room they flew!

They were dressed all in Armani, from their head to their foot,
but their clothes were all tarnished, with ashes and soot.

A bundle of love they had in their pack,
and they looked just like heaven, when I calmly stared back!

His eyes how they twinkled! His dimples how merry! (that really is a line!)
Piero’s glasses were there, the color of cherry! (that one’s not)

Gian said not a word but went straight to his work
and filled all my dreams with songs and a perk!

He’d left me Ignazio all covered with bows
and giving a nod up the chimney he rose!

He sprang to his Fiat, to Piero gave a whistle,
and away they both flew, like the down of a thistle.

But I heard him exclaim as they drove out of site,
“Happy Christmas to all, I hope Marie doesn’t bite!”

The Way That I See Time.

What you see isn’t really me, look closer and you’ll find, 
A face that’s 20
And unlined.

Gaze with your heart and not your eyes, 
To truly see
Where beauty lies.

Beneath this shell, If truth be told,
Is the breath of youth,
In a soul that’s old.

Know that love, indeed, is blind,
‘Cause here inside
I’m in my prime.

See me and not my many folds. 
I’ve been around,
God only knows.

Deep in my heart you’ll see the glow.
Young love lives here.
And now you know.

~Marie

“If you could only read my mind
and understand the way that I see time.”  

The Best Day of my Life

You’ve taken flight for home, sweet  songbirds.

It’s time for you to rest.

You’ve sung your little hearts out.

You’ve given us your best.

 

image

 

You’ve filled us with your beauty, our hearts are overflowing,

We say caio for now, and shed a tear, but  we are always knowing

That  you will come again,  though the waiting will be tough,

Anticipation can be sweet and will have to be enough.

After you’ve revived yourselves with lots of relaxation

Immerse yourselves completely in your favorite recreation.

 

The sea is calling Piero to help relieve his tension.

And Walter and Buddy truly need Ignazio’s attention.

Gianluca likes to spend his time with family and friends.

 

image

 

And soccer at the beach is a joy that never ends.

Piero says  the Nautilus Club is really neat,

And running in the sand feels lovely on the feet.

 

image

 

Sometimes just being left alone is really what  you need.

To take some time to ruminate and cut down on the speed.

 

image

 

Relaxing by the sea is always lots of fun

When you are with a best friend, just soaking up the sun.

 

image

 

 Even though this time is meant for rest and easy living,

The passion for your work will make you keep on giving.

 

image

 

You’ll be busy with recording and making future plans.

Please top your list with this request: remember all the fans

Who wait here in the USA  to hold you close once more.

We LOVE you, we WANT you, we NEED you,

You are OUR Grand Amor.

Eventually ~ Marie

I am excited to introduce you all to my new career as a song writer.   I have the words, but no tune yet,  although some melody keeps going around in my head.  I think I’ll call it something like..

🎵 Eventually 🎶

You’ll be loving me, eventually.
A great love for me, eventually.
From the start you broke my heart
your love was never shown,
but still I’m true, waiting for you, now that your grown.

You’ll be loving me, eventually.
I’ve much love for you, my dear, you’ll see.
Though you never call
remember I shall always be,
In love with you.
You’ll love me too.
E-ven-tual-ly.

You’ll be loving me, eventually.
There’s no one but you, Ingy for me,

Tho I love all three, remember I shall always be,
in love with you, you’ll love me to,
E-ven-tual-ly.

I’m the one you’ll love,  it’s really me.
Loretta knows that I’m your bride to be.

Tho the fans shall fall
remember you shall always be,
happy you’ll see,
Only with me,
E-ven-tual-leee-eee.

I have no shame.
I’ll bear your name.
E-ven-tual-ly.

What do you think of my new song, Boys?
