It was an era

It was an era

 

“It was an era,” the Zen Master said,

“of mystical songs.

But one stood out: the Beatles

‘Let it Be’—

an almost perfect combination

of Christianity and Zen.

 

‘Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be’

is a mantra.

 

‘There will be an answer, let it be,’

 

especially the way the song

dwindles down to nothing at the end,

but you still seem to hear the words.”

 

-Dick Allen
