Angel's Lullaby

Angel's Lullaby

A Poem by Doodley
"

A ballad in poetic verse

"
Fleeting teardrop tendrils, of the sorrow of mankind,
Clouded haze confusion, Gene Kelly, tap dancin' in the mind.

Eternal sun all dying, ecliptic, no power in her beams,
Gives way to lords of darkness, tormentors of our dreams.

The mountains spill their snowfalls, the forests shed their leaves,
The colour drains from the beauty, of Gaia's canvas where it breathes.

And so we abound in sadness, in self pity and lament,
For lover's lost, at all souls cost, our lives, we have all spent.

The pain and suffering enshroud us, to our homely beds we lay,
We wonder in our blackest hearts, can we get through another day?

We close our eyes in silence, to sleep, for peace again,
But we know that all our demons, are lurking around the bend.


**************************** SIGHS *********************************


In the deepest depths of darkness, as our broken hearts shall die,
Comes forth in the light of will O' wisps, a soulful lullaby.

From the Heavens above Eternal, speared forth across the night,
A gift from all the Angels, bathed in Love, for all our plight.

It's a lulla-by, It's a lulla-by, Michael's Angel's in full choral cry,
Singing a song of wonder, for seven billion where they lie.

It drifts through Earthen meadows, it traverses both the poles,
It rides along the gentle wind, and bores into our souls.

And when the c**k a-crowing, bids adieu to darkness end,
The song of Michael's Angel's strikes, our hearts begin to mend.

We open eyes to colour, newborn light, a brand new day,
And we know inside our reborn hearts, we are going to be okay.

We shrug off all the sadness, we lift off all the pain,
With shoulders straight, and lively gait, we're on our way again.

It's the power of our being, It's the toughness of our hide,
It's the Love inside our beating hearts, that keeps us all alive.

And if you ever find you beaten, all alone, beneath the sky,
Close your eyes, and listen, for the Angel's lullaby.

Sunbae, Master of rhyming and imagery
Whenever I read your poems, it takes me into a different kind of dreamy world. This was a Poet's dreamy Lullaby.
First part dealt with Sadness, pain and suffering ( you have brilliantly used here various elements of existence) then comes how poet's troubled sleep was excused by this beautiful angel's lullaby that has inspired the poet to think of a new day with new positivity. Second part ends on a very bright and positive note.
I loved this whole write, Sunbae :-)..the allusions, the imagery and the excellence you created through words..Wonderful execution of a wonderful idea.
Absolute brilliance and perfection.
Kudos !! Your experimental pieces are always bang on.

Doodley, Your rhyme scheme is so inventive and used very nicely to express the thoughts and the story that contains them. We poets ALL write of dreams, but your story has a troubled soul laying down to sleep and dreaming of angels singing....then waking up and using the motivational dream to make the new day bright and invigorating. A VERY clever use of the dream premise.
I like your style of using a series of couplets to form the construct of your work. Don't know if I could use that format but it certainly works for you. A very lovely idea and write. take care...dan

Okay this is absolutely beautiful I love it! I did find an area while I was reading it out loud that you may want to change... Not the words but where the comma goes it is this line
"The song of Michael's Angel's strikes our heart, begins to mend"
I would put the comma after strikes instead otherwise it runs together a little odd.
You painted such a vivid picture you are so talented. This truly is lovely.

The juxtaposition of Heaven and Earth - the lament for the living but why oh why shouldn't we be able to find Heaven on Earth? Is it just a matter of tuning in (and tuning the soul-eroding stuff out?)
Perhaps we have all co-convinced one another that we have to be sad here in order to be happy there.

Makes an enjoyable read. The first half with sorrow and darkness, and the second half with light, hope, and happiness. Just beautiful. Now if you'll excuse me, I have a lullaby to listen to.
