SMALL SONGS

Some songs are silver cymbals
and some are jeweled lutes
and some are eflins dancing
and some are magic flutes
Bird songs! Fire tipped harmonies
flame across far centuries
some songs are bright wings glancing
by leaf-hid waterfalls
and others eye entrancing
and some are laughing calls
across strange space where starlight
streams-
Go, little songs and bear our dreams
some songs are flame-borne whisperings
poets have spoken of
but all are from the time-harp's strings
that God has struck - for Love.
Such charm and cheer came not by
chance-
God too loves rhythm and romance!

  32. Everything and everyone in Nature produces some sort of song: the birds, the waterfalls, the people playing the flute/guitar etc..

    Your song, Margie, is writting this little poem about the above lovely songs.

  33. Just this week I came across an interesting phrase in a Langston Hughes poem -- heart songs. It seems to fit right in with your poem about songs of all sorts.

    Beautiful!
