Eden Ride

by Roger J Kenyon

Ride cymbal glide
A rhythmic sheen
Tapped near the top
To the edge for fills
Backing or
Enhancing the mood
With a soft touch
While weaved in a goup
Of creative magic
Oh ride cymbal glide
Once more
Take me to Eden
For an ethereal ride.


Author's Note: This started a continuing love affair for jazz.

Mine is the sax - that smooth, dulcet tone I heard when I listened to John Klemmer - oh, way too many years ago. Yeah...jazz and blues...nothing but the best. I hope your love affair with jazz is still continuing and has grown through the years.
