I hear sad and haunting soft played music
as the wind moans in the pines above
playing a harp of sorrow for tears that fall
in mourning for a long lost love.

The dancing leaves of reckless summertime
bring happy tunes for every tree
creating a light and lilting sweet refrain
borne by a vagrant breeze to me.

The sound of raindrops on a sloping roof
remind me of small fairies scampering here and there
lulling me with a symphony of sound
that drives away each worry and care.

The booming of the surf along the shore
the waves that lap the glistening, patient sand
sing songs of strange exotic far- off places
sometimes in chords I do not understand.

I hear music ... I need no instrument or strings
no trappings of a modern world can ever attain
perfection, like the scores of natures tunes
that ever match my moods of joy or pain.

  8. Margie...
    i love to read and re-read your poetry...with every repeat i feel something differently...and this just reaches right into my heart and expresses so perfectly how i feel when i am anywhere that nature is singing...

    i wake up every morning to the sweet songs of birds and i think there is no music anywhere that could start my day as magically as this...

    beautiful poem...(it's so so wonderful to have you back again)

  9. Thanks! Thanks! I knew the results of my two exams and it was all good. Just waiting for the other two.

    Babies are so cute and I'm too excited as we have them in our crew pretty soon.

    If it's cold there, it's hot in here. Summer is just few months. Time to hit the beach.

    The poem is really beautiful. :)
