Osiris Wordsmith Contest (aka Finish Tom’s Lyrics)

Wow! The response to this contest was incredible. The contest is now closed! 

There will be 2 winners — each will receive a Phish LP, signed by Tom and including a special message. The runner up will be announced during the Friday Couch Report (6:30pm ET), and the winner will be announced on the Sunday Couch Report (6:30pm ET). Subscribe to the Osiris YouTube channel to find out when we go live!

Tom wrote a verse of what might be a song someday. The problem is, he is stuck with a bad case of writer’s block. Please help Tom by contributing the next verse.

Rules—First, decide what this song might be about. What does it mean? Where should it go? Then, create a 4-line verse that makes sense after Tom’s first verse. Follow the same pattern Tom has established:

  1. use the same meter (word-rhythm: accents and syllables)
  2. Use the same rhyme-scheme — that is, AABB…meaning line 1 rhymes with line 2, and line 3 rhymes with line 4.
  3. Have fun!

The Song (so far):

Finally dreaming forgetting the day
I stepped off the edge, and floated away
soaring through cloud-laden memories again
where is she hiding, my dream-woven friend?
