Poem 106 of 230:  TESTING 4,3,2,1

I’ve tried to learn to sing a song
Well enough to let a singer
Know the way I found to sing
My lyric-only songs.

That is, just in case a singer
Was in want of a way to sing
These lyric-only songs.

But I’m sorry there’s no notes with the songs,
And hope they’re okay said, if not sung -

As love songs.

(P.S:  notating, via mimicking, my tunes came late,
But they were all in shorthand by 2008 -
With rhythm added, via numbers, to the letter-scheme
Several years later in 2015.)
