A Poem Wrapped in Music by Bob Atkinson

A Poem Wrapped in Music
(c)2013 Bob Atkinson
write that emotional treasure
your life, your loves, your leisure
tell all your best stories
describing love, life and glory

setting for us location
describe all with elocution
impact my heart with fire
by describing heart's desire

tell stories not yet told
of your actions weak and bold
tales of the heroes gone
to the past or current born

give me much to contemplate
while I live that sedate life
worrying about tomorrow
with those darlings or a wife

wrap this wondrous treasure
in a blanket of sweet sounds
music for a lifetime's thought
bringing my spirit to the ground

call this something I will know
a word with which to rest
my weary attention span
spread out over my chest

call the content and the notes
an entire ball of wax
something I will know and treasure
from my future to my past

call it song
