Sing a Song

Navya Karey 1998 (India)



O, my dear broken heart
Sing a song in this desert
Let your song reach his heart
He might find a way for this desert

Sing a song on this hectic breeze
This sun may weep along with you
Sing a song in that cruel storm
Let that wind drove you into the snow

Sing a song on this freezing land
Let this chilled wind feel his warmth
Sing a song for the spring
For his warmth can melt this Snow

Sing a song with birds
He's nearer to you
Sing a song with him
A Joyful song

    Dear Navya, I just love how you connect the counseling of your heart to sing with Nature's various ways of expressing herself. Singing with Nature as your fellow singer and ally, conspiring to bring your love song to the ears, heart, and spirit of your beloved. It's such beautiful imagery. How, no matter the season or weather, you turn its elements in a positive direction, using wind, cold, Warm Sun, barren desert, renewing Spring, even thr birds, to help your song of love to reach your beloved's inmost heart. Its so perfect a poem for this time of year. Just right for late winter/early spring season. Like Easter Lilies - blooming right when the moment is perfect. Thanks for sharing this beautiful, naturalist's love poem with us. It's magniloquent!
