Thoughts in Rhyme: A Lyrical Journey
By: Frank N. Owings, Jr.
About the Book
This book is a compilation of song lyrics Owings has written over the past fifty years. Without the music, the words and meaning stand on their own for the reader to judge as a work of art. The goal in presenting the lyrics as poetry is to evoke a response from the reader, good or bad, in agreement or disagreement, etc., without the music or melody line interfering.
