For What Reason

For What Reason

A Poem by Neva Flores Smith - Changefulstorm
"

Full in your view, the loveliest apparitions fix speaking eyes..............

"

































For what reason do my songs appear to dance with beauty
Among the red leaves tossed in autumn winds
If not for the sake of this love, I hold in my heart for thee
This fondness, which glows within

Full in your view, the loveliest apparitions fix speaking eyes
Upon the leaves dancing in song enamored of thee
A fine expression is heard in a rustling of whispered sighs
I smile in knowing, they speak to me

A splash of colors, yellow and orange begin to also hear
I watch them surrendering to dance the same
Tossed within this fondness they appear
To know and call your name

For what reason do my songs appear to dance with beauty
Among these leaves tossed in autumn winds
If not for the sake of this love, I hold in my heart for thee
Then they must dance because they can

They dance for the wind, they dance to be carried to the ears of those that would hear. Your songs dance to be enjoyed, to be sung, to be loved. For what reason? Mearly because they were written and in so being, they dance because they must. I love reading fro the fount of your quill Neva, it is a most beautiful quill that pens such inspiring words as these.

Songs have a mind of their own don't they? If not for the love we hold or nostalgia, or any other emotion for the fact.....they simply breathe on their own :)
Wonderful poem

This one does feel like a song to me. Perhaps the meter or word choice? Beautiful job!

I really like the imagery. When I hear certain songs I sometimes picture colors that symbolizes the feelings that the music makes me feel. This is what this poem reminds me of

Tapping along meter by meter
we dance to life's endless tune
Laughing and skipping around the fire
beneath the gaze of the harvest moon

You are a student of human nature

It was like being in a perfect place. All of the colors reminded me of the millions of reasons the love exists.

"Upon the leaves dancing in song enamored of thee", what a beautiful line and the whole piece just sings so softly in my spirit. Beautiful imagery!
