Folk music offers support for many moods.

In the peaceful nooks of my mind

A guitar softly strums "Wildwood Flower"

An asymmetrical rhythm of musical power

Haunting melody echoing from Virginia's hills

Folk music, crafted blends

Joy with melancholy, hope

Journeys of the heart

Labors many and hard

How their faith led them

Saw to it they could cope

Poverty's bards worked, prayed

Penned poetry, sharing love and dreams

Composed mountain symphonies

"Wildwood Flower", grace my memory long

"Folk music, crafted blends
Joy with meloncholy, hope"

Beautiful music passed on from those mountains; "Blue Grass" and the Carters brought Wildwood Flower to the world.
Memories you bring to us, Jon...thank you!

Words weaved so well that I found myself transported out of this coffee shop corner straight to the hills of Virginia, sun dress on,twirling a wild flower between my fingers, sitting under a shady tree with iced tea soaking in the sounds, smell of family food cooking and melody of your music. Well Done! Love to escape in someone's writing and you did that for me this morn. Cheer, Deborah

I love "Wildwood Flower." John Denver was one of my very favorite folk singers - many bluegrass artists know how to tell a story - so do Cajun musicians - Beautiful weaving of life and music - well done, Jon.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
