I will enable him to rest from the day's trials.

I'll play for U/

a lullaby/

of satin lace/


velvet ties/

unfurled upon dark placid skies/

in brilliant red & violet lines/

let's taste the nuance of their hue/

a smooth elixer sweet like chartreuse/

then wend upon an astral ride/

where castles peak above the clouds/

Beloved, come & take ur ease/ 

come, close ur eyes & be at peace/

I'll play for U/

a lullaby/

of satin lace/
& velvet ties

A loving lullaby to someone held very special unto yourself in which you pour all this beauty upon Shirley. How blessed are they to have something so wonderfully given, so musically and artfully described. From the angel yourself.


Love and Light

This poem is one of the best I've read of yours, as it is as smooth as that of which it speaks. A little movement of music. Beautiful and I love it! ~~ Diana
