Calliope's Song

Calliope's Song

A Poem by DannyLynne Riley

Calliope or Kalliope was one of the greek muses she was the muse of the epics also known as the muse of epic poetry and also the Goddess of eloquence


I sing you in shadows

In shades of misty morning grays

And bid your hand  a lovers waltz

Then dance you into day


I whisper you in kisses

and press your heart upon my page

and write your eyes in ebony stories

with ink of darkest sage


I cradle you in sea-shells

and catch your tears-drops in my hand

then form them into castles carved

of ice and sifted sand


I gather you in subtle storms

in lipid pools of light

through echo's born of distant songs

and sighs of deepest night


I bleed you into sunsets

and paint your soul across the sky

then wrap myself in twilight hues

and dream you into flight
