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.

and a music in its roar….’

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.
Ah yes, a beautiful resonant tune to lift the heart.
