You Say It’s Your Birthday – John Lennon

John Lennon wallpapers

Picture yourself in a boat on a river
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes

John Lennon, of course. Lucy in the Sky.

Meter to me is unattainable. I can hear it, I’m sure I like it, I just can’t grasp it. It would take a whole lot of focus and concentration for me to get it. Hence, I leave it to the professionals.

John Lennon would have been 81 tomorrow, and Lucy in the Sky begins with one of my favorite lines of all time.

  1. I stumbled across (quite literally) a baby snapping turtle on a morning walk after hearing that the Lucy in Lucy in the Sky had just died. So when I picked up the little turtle I named it Lucy. As it got bigger we discovered that it was male so we changed its name to Lucky – in lucky I didn’t step on him. We kept him until he was big enough to release, a little over a year. He was quite a character, too. He would get so excited when we walked in the room. Just wanted to share. I miss Lucky. I like the first line of this song, too. Lennon had a huge influence on me, and my poetry I think. Thanks for posting this.
