I Need A Song - Poem by Vertella Gadsden

To reveal my thoughts
That go round like a hill,
And bestir my love
Now motionless and still,
I need a song.

For butterfly wings
To softly hold my dreams
And to encompass
Love's provocative schemes,
I need a song.

To arouse my heart
And fan my desires
so they can expose
Love's enduring fires,
I need a song.
