• Your Songs

    Your songs are so beautiful
    Like roses and gardens sapphire
    With their moments never dull
    As days come clearly in desire
    The sweetness of your singing
    In pomp and circumstance
    With every street front bringing
    In days of embrace and trance

    Like love-song of the minions
    In silences and tone bend
    For the street daughters and sons
    That colors mix and blend
    In every footstep going
    Where everyone once is for all
    In the songs and words knowing
    That comes in their daily call

    Your voice rises from sleep
    Onto the banquet of its time
    For the days onward to keep
    From guitar’s strumming rhyme
    O love songs of the streets
    Among the folks there walking
    Of pure instances stepping feet’s
    And in all its audibly talking

    Many town loves have been torn
    Inside endless dispute and flow
    And each their sound newborn
    In beginnings of daybreak's glow
    When feelings are low and blending
    During endless time and space
    And on to the futures commanding
    Within your tone blend and grace

    Like love-song of the minions
    In silences and tone bend
    For the street daughters and sons
    That colors mix and blend
    In every footstep going
    Where everyone once is for all
    In the songs and words knowing
    That comes in their daily call - Peter S. Quinn

He is one of the best street singers in the world. That old and talented man is playing almost everyday in the centre of Brussels. He has become a living monument in the city, everybody loves him!

Please, also have a look at THIS VIDEO showing him playing 2 of his favourite songs (I recorded them yesterday!).

Your Songs

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

Your songs are so beautiful
Like roses and gardens sapphire
With their moments never dull
As days come clearly in desire
The sweetness of your singing
In pomp and circumstance
With every street front bringing
In days of embrace and trance

Like love-song of the minions
In silences and tone bend
For the street daughters and sons
That colors mix and blend
In every footstep going
Where everyone once is for all
In the songs and words knowing
That comes in their daily call

Your voice rises from sleep
Onto the banquet of its time
For the days onward to keep
From guitar’s strumming rhyme
O love songs of the streets
Among the folks there walking
Of pure instances stepping feet’s
And in all its audibly talking

Many town loves have been torn
Inside endless dispute and flow
And each their sound newborn
In beginnings of daybreak's glow
When feelings are low and blending
During endless time and space
And on to the futures commanding
Within your tone blend and grace

Like love-song of the minions
In silences and tone bend
For the street daughters and sons
That colors mix and blend
In every footstep going
Where everyone once is for all
In the songs and words knowing
That comes in their daily call
