poem must be magical

Authors Avatar


First, a poem, must be magical,

Join now!

Then musical as a sea-gull.

It must be a brightness moving

And hold secret a bird’s flowering.

It must be slender as a bell.

And it must hold fire as well.

It must have a wisdom of bows.

And it must kneel like a rose.

It must be able to hear

The luminance of dove and dear.

It must be able to hide

What it seeks, like a bride.

And over all I would like to hover

God, smiling from the poem’s cover.
