.-.Dulcimer Psalmody - Poem by Debora Short

An earthly intone graced with Spirit’s Songs
A guiding goodness gently leading souls

With most enchanted ears to greener life
And steeper royal hills adorned in bands

Of His morning light, translucencies heart
Songs of mourn-full farewells, a leading peace

Cornerstones of love built with hands of faith
Strumming safe passage to glassy blue seas

As promise-d, Jordan’s shore storms no more
Uplifting saplings to taller sky spaces

Indigenous mountaintop hardwoods, gifts
Of curly maple ~ shapely hourglass frames

Resonating loves humble thanksgiving
On frets set in black walnut songs of praise

Vows so sweet, so dear, so bountifully
Graced, a communities path to Home

Challenging those who find themselves with Him
At that well to recite His joy-filled song

While treading upward paths sweetly scented
Rose seeds newly watered sprigs of true life

Each treasured lone tree with roots growing deeply
Sings songs, bathe-d in His un-ending love

Dulcimers earthly hymn of higher hearts
Tenders gifts rising up in melody
