idea (reimagined)

I have incredibly gifted friends that bless me all the time, and one of those blessings came a couple of months ago in the form of song as my good friend David turned one of my poems into music.

He writes on his website, Travels of Anodos:
I have some of my favorite poems up on my wall, poems from Hopkins and Eliot and the like, and one called "idea" by my friend Ben. One night in the dorm, I was sitting at the desk playing my guitar and looking at the poems, and I began putting a tune to "idea." This is what came out.








"idea"
words by me, music by David Scudder.

Thanks again, David.
