  • As an angel strums a mandolin

    trees sway, leaves flutter

    the sunlight listens to

    a resplendent lullaby of spring.

    • • • • •

    An angel played a single note

    that carried on the wind

    was sung by the meadowlark

    as he trilled to find his mate

    the note caught a leaf and

    casts a shimmery song

    where echos ripple

    as the note repeats unbound

    a howl of a dog

    a caw of a crow

    across the meadow

    behind a potting shed

    a cooing turtledove

    a low and calming call

    the note fell upon a man

    whose ears were deaf

    and heard no color but saw

    and he skipped a little step

    just for the joy of it

    the soaring note

    played a quilted song

    of meadowlark to man

    and all it took to hear the song

    was the touch of an angels hand.
