SERENADE, by LEXIE DEAN ROBERTSON Poet's Biography
First Line: There is a singing in my heart
Last Line: Is my song's only word.
Subject(s): Hearts; Love; Quiet Life; Serenity
THERE is a singing in my heart
Like whispering of waves
That echo tunes where mermaids sing
Deep in their turquoise caves.
A singing like far temple bells
Swung in a golden arc
To build a bridge of melody
From saffron dusk to dark.
Like shining splash of purple oars
In some smooth moon-drenched pool
Where willows dip their scented fronds,
And little winds blow cool.
A singing sweet as any sound
That beauty ever heard,
And this is strange ... because your name
Is my song's only word.
