#1,235 Lyricality Share this:TweetShare on Tumblr Comments All these variations on the refrain to Boston’s famous song make me think of some of the supposed “rejected opening lines” for Joyce Kilmer’s “Trees” poem: I think I never may discern A poem lovely as a fern… I think that I shall never glance At poems lovelier than plants… It would require, I think, much practice To write a poem lovely as a cactus… Reply You ought to hear my variations on the chorus to Heart’s “Alone,” or alternatives to stepping on my blue suede shoes. Reply Those weren’t the actual lyrics? Had me fooled. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
