I Sing Melodies To God


Sometime ago, something struck Me in the throat:
itching and brushing me like an abrasive edge:
My heart pounded hard like a resonating sound
and My soul wondered how
to cross this hedge
Hedge it was but an inspiration it is now,
My heart no longer pounds but yearns to sing.....
melodies that even My lips are astound at,
as all My extolments to The King I bring.

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
