My Dream Angel From Heaven - Poem by Gillian Reynolds

I saw an angel from Heaven come down,
Fluttering her emerald wings,
On her head she wore a crown,
And on her harp she plucked the strings.

Her dainty feet touched the ground below,
She barely made a sound.
Why was she here? I wanted to know,
As she stood and looked all around.

She folded her wings so neatly together,
And placed her harp by her feet.
She moved towards me, light as a feather
And a smile on her face so sweet.

She took my hand and led me away
Through an opening in the trees,
Where I was, I could not say,
But around me I felt a cool breeze.

I then saw before me, a soft blue haze,
Which seemed to stretch for many miles.
The sight before me held my gaze
As through the mist were children's smiles.

The mist then cleared, I saw children playing,
Laughing and running around,
Hand in hand with each other and swaying
To the music coming up from the ground.

With the angel standing by my side,
I asked her what it all meant,
She told me not to run and hide,
That all of this was Heaven sent.

There will be peace in the world one day
And this vision is how it will be,
Just live your life and hope and pray,
And then one day, you will see.

Suddenly I stirred from my sleep,
The dream so real, the image still there.
I looked around and began to weep,
As I saw the harp lying on my chair.

    Yes, a majority of people, at least in the US, believe in angels, but I don't, because, like the tooth fairy they are non-extant. (Report) Reply

    Love the symbolism of the harp. Very finely constructed poem, beautiful imagery and strong conclusion - we can make the world what we dream it to be, the music being in our own hands. (Report) Reply

    beautiful indeed. i liked how it took a turn in the last part, though the rythm was a little off. regardless, there are so many great poems. many of which are written, but few are read. im glad i was able to catch this one. nice. (Report) Reply
