A Wishing Melody

I am singing to the night
A wishing melody
Knock open the flight
Of its measures so free
Enter the coming hours
With a singing to understand
Bring on thy night flowers
Inside my dream command

Encaging picture walls
And streets I am walking
The inside shadow’s halls
That daylight all are lacking
I feel you know the fact
That reality has eaten up
In each its conduct act
That makes doggerels – yup

I am singing on to you
Through shallow gone ways
And ask you to renew
What in your musing plays!
I am singing to the dawn
A desiring lyrically
That each its color be drawn
In love songs – eternally



*From, http: //en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lyric_poetry:

“Lyric poetry refers to either poetry that has the form and musical quality of a song, or a usually short poem that expresses personal feelings, which may or may not be set to music”.

Thus, if you are writing lyrics, you are probably writing lyrical poetry.

A Withering Rose

A withering rose
Like summer of blossom goes
- In autumn tint glows.

A Word is a Yes and Sometimes No (From, The River Sings On)

A word is a yes and sometimes no,
The fluttering unfinished page;
A time between the lines and a go,
The air of nothing and rage.
The whirlwind of appearances,
The trees of names and body;
Among the lines and acceptances,
The spirit and the cleft of gaudy.

Footsteps into the next room,
Will lead a way to no return;
The feelings that will become doom,
As the ways to flesh adjourn.
Among the words that on show,
Like the leaves between the white;
Or the day that in silence grow,
When distances have more appetite.

A word is a yes and sometimes no,
Though full of life in giving birth;
To all the hours that onward flow,
And you in your thoughts think of worth.
Unreal speech in keeping still,
The strands of language real - unreal;
Before it evaporates to fulfill,
Each of its dark corner and bastille.
 
Peter S. Quinn

Accidental Opus (From, Illuminating Night)

Just an accidental opus,
A song for another occasion;
Not to cause abrasiveness,
Just to settle some persuasion.

Just an accidental song,
They were singing with a chorus;
A melody to get along,
To get sentimental and sonorous.

Just an accidental passing,
Into an oblivion tune;
A thought here and there classing,
Into time's afternoon.

Just an accidental way,
For whatever there inside is;
To meet the coming day,
And what a future may wish.
 
Peter S. Quinn
