Don’t Be Sorry

why me

why not me

do not pity me

God has a purpose for all

love consumes all things

try to do His will

do the next right thing

Poem:             The “Décima” is a Spanish style or form of musical poetry
that contains 10 lines of eight syllables.
The style has a rhyming pattern of abbaaccddc.
You (as I have done here) can break the stanza up in abba/accd/dc.

.

the music begins quietly
the beat is measured and steady
the dancers are poised and ready
their steps are made so silently

every move made decisively
all builds to a loud crescendo
no hint of an innuendo
a quadrille for merry lancers

smiles, laughter for band and dancers
finally a decrescendo

What Is Enough

.

“...and then,

I have nature and art

and poetry,

and if that is

not enough,

what is enough?

~ Vincent van Gogh

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

sufficient
plenty enough
more than adequate
a pretty decent amount
much

Poem:   The Good King

.

it was the angel’s only responsibility
the precocious child of nobility
to keep him safe and lead him to God
if only he were not the Devil’s lightning rod

good and evil, right and wrong
the angel sang her innocent song
the Devil’s beat, he called it rap
the lyrics were a devious trap

the boy an inculpable beholder                          (innocent bystander)
from his left shoulder to his right shoulder
the angel held by the devil’s mesmerizing sway
they danced and pranced the day away

the boy was confused, did just as he pleased
his young heart was unfairly squeezed
some deeds were nice, other acts were atrocious
to his peers he was truly ferocious

God witnessed the dance from His throne above
His message of balance in this world is love
the angel was enraptured by His heavenly glow
to the Devil he delivered a knockout blow

with the angels touch the lad was delivered from hell
the trumpet sounds were joined by the lofty church bell
looking up he saw a Good Orderly Direction
heart and soul his rule was guided by loving affection

the Devil came to and attacked the young lord
the angel stepped in, ever faithful to her word
heart and soul the now king was on the angels side
his faith in love was enough to reverse the tide

the good king’s new bride was the angel in disguise
they lived happily ever after which is no surprise
