Daily Ditty #20 - A nod to the Bee Gees ("More Than A Writer")

Ok, I started off pretty true to the lyric form, then lost my way as time ran out. But heck - it's still fun to sing along with the Bee Gees on a grey winter day (ooo! gotta get to the Momma's and Poppa's - how 'bout a little "California Dreaming"?)

How incredible was John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever??? (But her? Never got her.)


Used to be she lived to write

She wrote all day and through the night

Work was always on her mind

Rhymes and dialogue was trying to find.

Then one day her life just changed

Priorities got rearranged

Her body and soul told her you need a break

Health, home and family filled her days.


And all your life you define yourself

You are the thing it is you do

When you let go the laser focus

You’re in freefall, grasping for the new you


Here in this new life she finds a happiness

She never thought would feel so right

If she could find a way to merge the two

Mother by day, artist by night…?


More than a writer

More than a writer is she
