Is it the melody? Are they the chords?©01/03/2014 Carol Welch
that subtly catch and spirit up my heart?
Or, is it the lyrics, meaningful the words,
lift my soul, and prompting to join in starts?
Is it the thought or the beat from within,
that causes the song then to break forth?
Is it the tone reminds me once again,
of a time or occasion held in worth?
Is it the skip now beckoning my feet,
to dance to the meter of the day?
If feet are for leading, then may they meet,
my heart, by song within, carried away.
The prosaic and common, daily grind,
bearing up, as traveling along.
Enable me, in them, a serenade to find,
and accompany the duties with a song.
