Joy! Joy! Joy!


The melody of the tune
Joy! Joy! Joy! Joy!
Joy! Joy! Joy! Joy!
Joy! Joy! Joy! Joy!
Joy!

Base
Alto
Soprano
Someone always missed the tune
We all laugh
At the end of that song

Joy!
Joy!
Joy!
The sopranos sang
We kept going
It seems so long

I smiled
All the way through this song
We all smiled
When we sang this one

It is the season of joy!
Let, joys rang
Like a bell
It prolong
Joy! Joy! Joy! ...

    Thank you Shelbi for the correction, did not notice. I've bad habits for not checking for error.
    I do sing on the choir, last year while preparing for a Christmas Cantata we kept missing beats in this song.
    Instead it becomes an headache we all looked at each other and laugh.
    It was such fun.
    I'm happy you felt the JOY of what I was trying to relate to my reader.
    Bless you! (Report) Reply

    I really like the theme of this poem. The repetition of the word joy, the exclamation points and the general tone made me feel the joy in this poem. I felt the laughter and the happiness. One thing that confused me on the 8th line and throughout the poem is I think you misspelled soprano. Great job though! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
