A Poem About A Song

Related image

This song

sung in the right key

can follow the curvature of the earth

scale mountain ranges

with a bass

as deep as the seabed

A melody as rhythmic

as waves breaking

with an underscore

of tidal cadence

 

This poem

written in simple verse

can eke out meaning,

climb above mundane

with a sonorous note

to imbue pathos

Hardly a sonnet

but free to range over

life’s bumps

resonant of better things
