In Vast Delight


There's a wonderful sound in my world tonight!
Ten trillion snowflakes falling.
My breath is still in vast delight,
I hear the season calling.

Suddenly, my heart takes flight!
I hear your voice a-singing.
Your melody is clear and bright,
Sweet magic it is bringing!

There's a wonderful sound in my world tonight!
The sound of starships sailing.
Guitar and fiddle elude my sight,
But enchantment is unfailing.

Suddenly, my heart takes flight!
I hear your voice a-singing.
Your melody is clear and bright,
Sweet magic it is bringing!

    I am very much delighted to read this poem. As told in the title, you have really put my heart 'In Vast Delight'. So, I give this poem 10/10.
    'Ten trillion snowflakes falling.
    My breath is still in vast delight,
    I hear the season calling.' - These three lines instantly remind me of the two lines from William Wordsworth's 'Daffodils':
    'Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
    Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.'
    As you said:
    'Your melody is clear and bright,
    Sweet magic it is bringing! ' - How about giving some clues of those 'sweet magic', which you also mentioned in the note? (Report) Reply

For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
