Sweet Art Thou

Neil Higgins

Sweet art thou who sings to angels request of living joy and hope.Becalm and still with peace to cope.Listening to the sonnets of earthly pleasures of warmth and endless fest.Gather in the twine and slack, with calmness,express your rest.Talk to the deaf who refuse to warm to sonnets and gifts,mumbling to the ground instead.Breathing all your poets breath to feed them love to tread.Laughing with the afters,as life dances in dervish whirls of joy.Praying for the souls of all,as happiness portrays her ploy.

  • Fay Slimm.

    A fine "play on words " is this
    linguistic penning my poetic friend - -- - life certainly dances with joy for me after reading your sagacious encouragement to sing with those angels.
