Songs of Angels (Sonnet)

Robert Haigh is an amateur English poet, Musician and photographer.






When songs of angels reach these mortal ears,
I cease my daily toil and listen well.
Such glorious sounds can soothe away all fears,
And every lingering doubt they will dispel.

These songs are borne upon the winds each day,
Though seldom heard above life's hue and cry.
But listen very closely and you may
Still catch those heavenly sounds as they drift by.

The angels send us songs that we might hear
A preview of what lies behind the veil.
A leap of faith can banish any fear,
And make us unafraid to sometimes fail.

For on the back of failure rides success,
And ultimately, our true happiness!
