Weaving a Tapestry--By George L. Ellison--England

Weaving  a Tapestry

I FEEL THE EARTH MOVE below me though you’re SO FAR AWAY
IT’S TOO LATE now to hope that you will come back HOME AGAIN;
You always were so BEAUTIFUL But now you are WAY OVER YONDER
Please hear me and know That YOU’VE GOT A FRIEND
WHEREever YOU LEAD I will wander
WILL YOU STILL LOVE ME TOMORROW? I really have to know
Like SMACKWATER JACK on the rampage I’m always on the go
So I’ll continue to weave my TAPESTRY of the NATURAL WOMAN  
That I love more than you could know

Note--Capitalized words are song titles from Carole King’s Tapestry album

  1. Oh! Clever, George! I like your creative style and how you have cleverly dedicated your piece to an artist! Very cool! Sheri /

  2. This is a wonderfully romantic poem, a bit of sadness to it and a bit of hope. It leaves the reader wanting to say to "the natural woman" you need to get back with this man! Well done.

  3. Hi George. Clever and surprisingly fun. Thanks for sharing and continued blessings!

  4. Wonderful George. Great songs from a classic album and brilliant songwriter. A great write well done. best wishes. Pete.

  5. George, this is quite a magnificent tribute to an amazing song writer. I've always enjoyed Carol King's work, but when I saw her in "Blood Brothers" on Broadway, I was amazed by her acting ability too. Thank you for sharing this! Best wishes, Carolyn
