Come read Jade’s – WRITER’S QUOTE WEDNESDAY – STILL I RISE!
Please come and enjoy – A Lonely Melody!
my baritone heart
sings on a lonely stage
before empty seats
longing to be a duet
of your soprano heart
here alongside of me
a crowded auditorium
as the insistent echo
of my baritone heart
rings in hollow halls
he croons a ballad
a song meant for two
a song unrequited
just for you
I can feel your touch Like an angel’s wing against My fast beating heart
If the intensity
of my words
you to dance
I would compose them
with a passion
and a hunger
that your body
could never resist.

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about your despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting —
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.
Mary Oliver, poet
