A Common Melody (poem)

Updated on September 25, 2014

A melody upon the sea

A silent voice that called to me

What did it bode it would not say

But from its spell I could not flee


That no one heard caused some dismay

Perhaps this fate was meant this way

That only I could feel the sound

While other people felt their day


So to the ocean I was bound

My thoughts were spinning so profound

What secret was awaiting there

What symphony makes my heart pound


Sweet music seemed to fill the air

And to all else I’m unaware

Till I then kissed the promised shore

To find what fortune had to share


But then the music was no more

Just faces wond’ring what it’s for

What set us drifting to this place

What special need did sea restore


And there it was upon each face

A special smile a special grace

That shared this common memory

That somehow vanished but this trace
