Haiku For Pete Seeger

28 Jan

I saw you sing once
About twenty-five years back
For the Sunset House.

Retired old ladies
Activists in younger days
Sat upon the stage.

It was very hot
In that auditorium
We worried for them.

You had your grandson
Singing with you, the old songs
I knew from my youth.

Goodbye, Pete Seeger
Thanks so much for being here
We’re less with you gone.

    Truly sad news about Pete Seeger, one of the true greats. Given that he was 94, it’s not unexpected, but I’d still rather hoped he was secretly immortal. R.I.P. Pete Seeger.

    Thanks for introducing me to him. I guess that sounds pretty lame, that I didn’t know who he was!
