In Vast Delight - Poem by Connie Yost

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
