|Paul, I am swept to the creek, or the shores of rivers stream, gentle glides of water rush...the birds which also sing...In days gone by, I layed inside the visions of "Hear My Song"....I gazed into the blue sky listening
"Bathe within its soothing balm.
Cleanse and you will know,
how great it feels to sing its psalms
wherever you may go."
ahhh yes the good life.....sublime, and serene & Mother Earth's perfections as I naw on a pieces of clover blooms
Peace, Love & Poetry

|I really loved reading this, and I may again sometime. This poem reassures us that life is not the dull, aching abstract thing that makes us carry on. What makes us carry on is "the song of life" and all we have to do is listen to its rhapsody; like the rain hitting the windows, or children laughing while they play, a mother humming a tune while she cleans or even cooks. The "song of life" is there if only we take the time to listen. But nobody does hardly anymore, because everybody is rushing to meet this plane or that train, scurrying to a meeting across town in a taxi stuck in traffic, and still, they do not hear the rhapsody, as they look at their wrist watch, counting down the minutes before they are late.
A wonderful reminder, Paul, that life is there waiting to be lived, not just existed in. Thank you for sharing this wise poem.
May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and who love you, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie

|What a beautiful, wondrous piece of artistry, Paul, so lilting in its vocal rhythm, so easy on the tongue.
I must confess that most of the poetry I commit to memory nowadays is my own (maybe because I'm inherently lazy and, since I composed the words, I have a headstart on remembering the words). But "Hear My Song" is surely one that breaks my pattern and stirs me to enjoy its beauty again and again.
Thank you for bringing us all such a splendid treat.
Well done, Paul. Well done!

|I like "whichever way we think" in the third stanza. This is a reassuring poem, Paul. Usually if we try to think positive, life is indeed a rhapsody, not In Blue, but in golden yellow.
Peace and love,

The first two lines of the last stanza capture the sentiment to take pleasure in the little things life offers. This is a relaxing poem - a feeling that emphasizes the message. Great write. Take care!

|Yes, just like your wonderful poem, you can get lost in a song.
Until the police pull you over and book you.
But that's another story.
Take care Tony
