A Poem: Suspended

There are so many things that keep us abreast,
that can lift us and carry us through.

Today for me,
it was the long note of a tune
suspended in the light,

and the way one note followed the other,
as waves do upon a beach,
constant and consistent.

Yes, one friend talks about the way
we can always begin,

that as children of the resurrection
everything is new,
and grace a door forever open.

So today I sing,
and watch how a note will carry on and on
until its done,

and another then enters in
from the wings.

‘There is a company that nobody can disturb at the deep sea,
and a music in its roar….’
Lord Byron, from ‘There is Company’

  1. Yes, yes indeed. I know it is the wrong season but this poem makes me think of “Joy to the World” which is simply a descending scale with pauses.
