The Melody


The Melody

Tinkling, merry laughter falls
On my ears like wondrous rain
Bubbling like the freshest brook
A chorus of mingled giggles
Trickling through reaches of green grass
Frothing over sharp edged rocks
Swirling eddies round my feet as
I paddle just off the dock

The breeze whistles, nudges, tickles
Teasing reeds, pushes weeds around
And they join me, tripping, falling
Sprawling on the dewy wet ground
Stretching cat like, tapping my feet
With ripples in harmony
All around, the fiddle pipes on
In the sunlit melody

And today, I have it all,
In the dampness of the shade
They all play, they play for me
As if for me this world’s made
And they smile, I smile with them
With ripples in harmony
In the laughter, I hear you too
You complete my melody
