      There Is a Voice

There is a voice within the wind;
It seems to call to me:
"Come, leave behind your earthly cares,
And set your spirit free!"
Now, answering, my joyful heart
Ascends above the world;
And soars o'er lofty mountaintops,
With golden wings unfurled.

There is a voice, within the rain;
It speaks to me of peace:
"Surrender to my gentle touch,
And soon your fears shall cease!"
Caressing me, it fills my pores,
Descending through my skin;
And, as it soothes my weary soul,
A rainbow forms, within.

There is a voice, within the earth;
It bids me, "Celebrate;
For, spring is here, the world is green,
And summer's at the gate!"
My will renewed, my hope restored,
My cares and worries, gone;
With gratitude, I raise my voice,
To join in nature's song.

exceptional imagery in this piece and VERY well written and expressed...
nice to have you here in passions, welcome
take care, jm

 Do you live by the book, do you play by the rules
Do you care what is thought by others about you
If this day is all that is promised to you
Do you live for the present, the future the past...

There is a voice in poetry
That softly calls to me
In spoken word and written lines
There lays the world to see
I answer with an open heart
With rhythm and with rhyme
That pour in verse upon the page
To stand the test of time

....oh, sorry, was inspired here. Nice poem by the way

Troy,
There is a voice within you that speaks to my heart about hope and peace and freedom.  Well done and very well put. Every line was a breath of pure sweet fresh air.

Wow!  You folks make me blush!  When I saw all the notifications in my mailbox, I thought it must have been a mistake...maybe the system screwed up and sent me somebody else's notifications, LOL!  It was really nice to find out that it WASN'T a mistake, though - thanks for adopting me into the family!

This is more than just a delightful poem of spring. It was wrought with poetric talent. Perfect in rhyme and meter, and wonderful imagery.
I liked it more than a lot
