Wind Chime

Rating: 5.0

As sun rose in the early dawn
And skies were lit with gold,
I saw the clouds go passing by
And watched my dreams unfold,
For as the morning breeze did blow
It softly spoke to me,
The wind chime played the sweetest song
A graceful melody.

I rested in the leafy shade
Whilst there I thought of you,
I closed my eyes and there I wished
That you were with me too,
And as the noontime breeze did blow
Across the summer sky,
The wind chime played the sweetest song
That through the air did fly.

As shadows started falling
On the dark deserted ground,
I heard a gentle ringing then
So beautiful the sound,
For as the evening breeze did blow
And glowing sun did set,
The wind chime played the sweetest song
I never shall forget.

I watched the fading afterglow
That slowly slipped away,
Beneath the dark horizon far
To close another day,
And as the twilight breeze did blow
And stars did shine above,
The wind chime playrd the sweetest song
The sweetest song of love.

A beautiful melodic piece that has a kind of olde worlde quality, and a super rythmn and flow that runs throughout. Wind chimes can so often jingle a feeling of peace and contentment. Best Steve

A poignantly descriptive poem with a lovely lilting rhythm and a memorable chorus. This would be beautiful set to music, Andrew. In a minor key, of course. Your love of words is evident in everything you write. This one is no exception. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
