Wednesday haiku - "I Call Your Name"

I made an oversight when composing the haiku for songs from Past Masters, Volume One, the compilation of early Beatles singles and b-sides that also includes the four tracks off the Long Tall Sally EP. I mistakenly thought all four were covers, and skipped over them because I didn't want to get bogged down in haiku for non-original songs. As it turns out, one was an original - "I Call Your Name," written by John before The Beatles formed.

Between the twelve-string,
the cowbell, and the ska bridge,
"Name" unfolds with flair.

(The rest of my Beatles haiku can be found here.)
