This video was featured on one of their best of CD’s. Great compilation of the current Doors members putting music to Jim’s poetry recording session.
An American Poet 1943 – 1971.
Awake.


Shake dreams for your hair
My pretty child, my sweet one.
Choose the day
And choose the sign of your day,
The day’s divinity.
First thing you see.


A vast radiant beach
And a cool jeweled moon.
Couples naked race down
By its quiet side,
And we laugh like
Soft mad children
Smug in the wooly
Cotton brains of infancy.


The music and voices
Are all around us.


Choose they croon
The ancient ones,
The time has come again.
Choose now they croon
Beneath the moon
Beside an ancient lake.
Enter again the sweet forest.
Enter the hot dream
Come with us.
Everything is broken up
And dances.


Indians scattered on
Dawn’s highway bleeding,
Ghosts crowd the young child’s
Fragile egg-shell mind.
