Beliefnet ran a feature for Poetry Month and asked us to do a post on our favorite poem. I wondered how I would be able to choose, and then remembered an old poem I wrote back in 1976 that I really love, so this is my poem for Poetry Month.
Oh, glory to the stars that shine
In everlasting splendor,
their sparkling dust of joy to fall
upon the blossoming heart, the tender rose
that smiles here below the sky.
Wisps of harmonies catch the strings within the spirit
and dancing gently round them,
bring them laughing into play, to sing
love’s cosmic melody, its touch
upon the lute within
begins to weave resounding
trails of voices singing,
ringing to the sky with joy
the praises of this life.
