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
