Sing Your Song (Villanelle)



Sing! Sing your song for all of us to hear!
A song well-sung will brighten any day.
Play! Play that song so full of warmth and cheer!

A sprightly song is always welcome here,
To lighten and to lift those clouds of grey.
Sing! Sing your song for all of us to hear!

The heart is gladdened by a song so dear;
It helps us with our load along the way.
Play! Play that song so full of warmth and cheer!

A happy song can wipe away a tear,
And music is the food of love, they say.
Sing! Sing your song for all of us to hear!

We welcome any willing balladeer
Whose singing can be heard above the fray.
Play! Play that song so full of warmth and cheer!

Keep singing and the sun will reappear.
Our hope still springs eternal, come what may.
Sing! Sing your song for all of us to hear!
Play! Play that song so full of warmth and cheer!
