Felicity (poem)

Updated on December 5, 2016

Let’s call the town Felicity.

The townsfolk there were quite care free

A pleasant enough place to be

So what’s the story Wait and see


There was a girl lived in the town

We’ll call her Tess so you won’t frown

Tess likes a smile don’t put that down

She’s sweeter in her peasant gown


The only stress for town and girl

She had voice would make one whirl

It could and did make hair uncurl

To say it’s bad would be a pearl


Tess loved to sing She felt so sad

To know her singing drove folks mad

She knew her voice was really bad

Yet something to it made her glad


She tried to get professional aid

Some told her go They even paid

And some sought out a different trade

The rest just left They were afraid


So thus went life from day to day

The people laughed children at play.

Till voice of Tess put peace at bay

Ow Tess sweet Tess please go away


One day a circus brought a man

Sure I can help here Yes I can

Just leave your money in my van

And bring the girl to hear my plan


Well Tess she gladly went along

It wouldn’t hurt. It’d fix her song

The man said nothing could go wrong

And with the town she’d soon belong


The townsfolk gathered near the hall

They wondered just what would befall

And out walked Tess so straight and tall

But now she had no voice at all


She could still sing but without sound

A voice that made all proud was found

Warm joy was shared by all around

And Felicity rebounds


It’s true that Tess’s voice could slay

So bad it kept Bad Luck away

And he came back without delay

Forgotten place for him to play


Without experience to share

Felicity turned to Despair

And with Bad Luck they made a pair

Together strutting naught to spare


The town now theirs they made that clear

There was one place they dare not near

A silent voice still they could hear

That carefree voice filled them with fear
