Sonya Annita Song


I Long to Climb


I long to climb into the sky
On steps of wisp and smoke;
I long to feel the sweet caress
Of heaven’s velvet cloak.
I long to greet the newborn dawn,
Blushing in its youth;
I long to shoo the honeyed rays
From shadow’s hungry tooth.
I long to hear the faeries sing
Conducted by the moon;
I long to dance with dimpled winds
In Eden’s fair lagoon.
I long to stroke a comet’s tail
Impetuous in flight;
I long to whisper in the dark
Of dreams beyond the night.
I long for things I cannot have
And I will not deny,
For beauty’s sake is why I long
To climb into the sky.

    it took me three or four readings of this line: And I will not deny, to understand its meaning. now i get it.

    nice rhyming. i especially enjoyed dimpled winds and stroke a comet's tail. and i like your use of punctuation!

    thanks for sharing. you've inspired me! bri :)

    Bri's Longings

    I long to have a pizza pie.
    Give it to me; don't ask why.
    I long for a hot fudge sundae.
    Give it to me though it's Monday.
    I long to have my cake and eat it too.
    Give me cookies and pastry topped with goo.

    If you don't give me all for that I'm now asking,
    I'll then cause you to do multiple tasking.
    You'll have to massage both my feet,
    'cause I've not gotten EACH treat.
    And do give me all your money;
    it's almost sweet as honey. (Report) Reply
