I, Too, Sang For You

I, Too, Sang For You

A Poem by Zahra
"

We couldn't understand what to make of tragedies, so turned them into art.

"
Not in pursuit of the pride flowing 
in ditties of celebrated ties; 
but in a sombre act of being 
an ode conceived from your rhymes, 
I, too, sang for you. 

Songs sweeter never in sodality 
of strings and pipes designed, 
but in quietness that souls adorn 
at moments of divine serendipity; 
I, too, sang for you 

carols death can never consume, 
melodies marching to the other side 
to place an earnest kiss at your brow.

Such gentle phrasing, graceful and warm. Feel as if there's a two-way dialogue, or two trains of thought, ending at exactly the same place.. heart-felt and affectionate. You meter in places that near sing: ' Songs sweeter never in sodality - of strings and pipes designed, - but in quietness that souls adorn - at moments of divine serendipity,' Tragedy is what cracks the whip, comedy flicks the hand that holds the whip!

i think this is beautiful Zahra ... i feel a certain deep respectful peace in reading the first verse .. it draws me into myself gently ... "...sodality of strings..." brilliant says i! just brilliant! we do sing for the muse don't we ...all kinds of tunes ... blessed indeed to receive such a kiss .. blessed indeed! nice one ..the language is so satisfying :)

Thank for your words, my friend. :)
This was such a calm and somber piece. It so subtly and delicately tugs one the heart strings. Great job

Beautifully composed Zahra...It is the solidarity expressed in sorrow and tragedy and not in festive celebration, that endures forever. It's a pleasure reading your poetry always.

thanks a lot xoxo
sounds much like an ode to another poet..."melodies marching to the other side"
nice alliteration and that line sort of marches...

really like how you end this...that kiss on the brow...of love and friendship, far more permanent than kisses of passion.

nicely expressed.
