A beautiful poem, sent to me, inspired by Silvana

Dreaming

(For Belinda, after reading Silvana: The Greening)

 

Some anthem

deep within the mystic groves of sleep,

echoes through the slumbering wildwood

and trembling among the fallen leaves,

ceases.

 

Some song,

risen from the valleys of the heart,

soothes itself against a memory,

then plucking at the chords of thought,

quietens.

 

Some music,

carried on the sleeping wings of night,

deep inside the silence of the soul,

lingers until morning, then

vanishes.

 

Then dreams,

tuned from the broken lyre of hope,

creep through the being, clutching at the mind,

and toll the ancient silver bell of love,

till all the sleepers wake,

and find their peace.

 

 

I am both thrilled and humbled by this. Thank you x
