(written to a friend of voice and heart and in rhyme for Liz)


For David Because


David sings
a song for you,
the melody’s catchy
the meaning true.

David sings
of love and loss
of a struggle that
most men know,
then he sings the sorrow
of a woman’s tears
and understands the cost.

David sings
a laugh or two    
his heart is
in the words,
then like grains of sand
he sifts his notes
‘til you know he understands.

David sings and
hope and forgiving
fall into his vase of words,
then he pours them out
with rhythm his guide
and love of harmony
inside.

He sings of years
of trying
and the changes that
must take place
for steps that often
walk away
and times that make or break.

David sings
a melody
of life and love
and time,
that repeats again
when all is quiet
within the listener’s mind.




 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.
(ee cummings)

David sounds like quite a singer....and a lucky one to have a friend like you.

Rhyme or no....your poems are always wonderful...this was a real treat, though!

And slight is the sting of his trouble
Whose winnings are less than his worth;
For he who is honest is noble,
Whatever his fortunes or birth.~~~Alice Cary, ~Nobility~
