Poem 9: “Music Explained”

“Music Explained” by Mandy Austin Cook

from emotion to mouth

from emotion to heart
from emotion to soul
from emotion to spark
magic movement of moments
all keeping time
dancing lyrics somber steps
comforting whispers of rhyme
rhythmic beats of beautiful treats
cadences reaching out to the repeat.
from laughter to love
from happy to why
from joy to the point of needing to cry
with hands and with heart with scripture and song
clashes claps strings plucks and strums
flute piano guitar harp and drums
something all needed that never will tire
expression of all
is musical lyre
