Announcing: Lyrical Tuesdays from Jane Hall on the IPBlog

Monday, August 31st, 2015

Each Tuesday I will be selecting a lyric to post on the IPBlog. Starting today, September 1, 2015.
Please send comments and if the idea is popular, it will continue. The great american songbook cannot die. I will include a few lines about the composer and encourage you to google him/her/them if you like.
Thank you Arnie for this opportunity – I feel that lyrics qualify as poetry. The first selection is dedicated to Arnie, Founder and Editor in Chief of psychoanalyticpsychotherapy.net

Cole Porter – You’re The Top Lyrics

At words poetic I’m so pathetic
That I always have found it best
Instead of getting it off my chest
To let ’em rest unexpressed (more…)
