Sing Me In Song

Sing Me In Song

A Poem by Linda Marie Van Tassell
"

Sing me in song from a poet’s pen onto the vellum of sacred scrolls that I might sing forever again between the lips of a thousand souls.

"


Sing me in spring like a sparrow’s song
or the tongue of a gypsy river,
like peepers beneath a jade sarong
or skirts of wind in full-blown quiver.

Sing me in summer with morning rain
on tin rooftops shaking with thunder,
in water-spun sails that winds unchain
over magical realms thereunder.

Sing me in autumn with cashmere sleeves,
in flames of a crackling fire,
in patchwork puddles of fallen leaves

or a church bell in lofty spire.

Sing me in winter, snow-soft serene,
in baskets brimming with fluffs of white,
in wordless bouquets of evergreen
beneath the moon on a starry night.

Sing me in song from a poet’s pen
onto the vellum of sacred scrolls
that I might sing forever again
between the lips of a thousand souls.

dear Linda Marie... your poem is mystical
and lyrical like a Gypsy twirling in a breeze.
I have written your poem in my Journal.
Having Gypsy in my blood, since my father's family is from Hungary,
I was drawn to your words like a fire on a Winter's night.
"on tin rooftops shaking with thunder... over magical realms
thereunder." The parchment with a song is my treasure...
Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. I quiver... truly, Pat

Divine.....simply divine. In utter honesty, the "morning rain" imagery has more power associated with Spring, and the Spring stanza, though could be associated with Spring as well, could be associated with Summer. The only thing that screws up that critique and switch is the fact that the current progression of the images/ideas are utter perfection in that order, and you always know how to craft your lines so well, that I don't want you to tamper with anything.....I just feel that lulling about rain in a season that's not particularly supposed to have that much rainfall without also lulling about the central factors of the season like you do beautifully in every other season has a kind of je-ne-sais-quoi that doesn't really fit despite the delicious beauty of your words.

Just spouting my two cents, no need to take it seriously if you don't want to. This is a great piece (as usual). Well done!

Thank you, Robert. I'm sure you could sing it just fine.
"sing me sing me, baby, sing me sing me" from an old song.
i really like this poem...but the first stanza is really incredible...the quiver, the sarong...mmm, scrumptious word choice and rhyme there.
and if the poem is good enough...it will be sung or read forever by a thousand souls...for sure.
