Angela’s Poem


letting moments like this slip
regales a dream’s allure
insubstantial drifts of form are
sure as melody to inner ear

thoughts are clear and echo
in the bells’ carillon clarity of
massed accord – resonate to
peerless themes of simple call

wonderment entrapped in family
gauze has kept this seemly state
attentive to each living breath –
and that’s the awe

your caring words are piety to
void the sphere of blasphemy
epithets of selflessness are
where I’ll make accord

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
