Sweetest Starling

Sweetest starling, stand astounding.
Sleeping soundly, seasons passing,
Stay the startling sounds. Outstanding
Music sung, silence surpassing.

Sweetest starling, sight is sparkling.
Saturn stunned and Venus spiteful!
Scarify the sinful darklings,
Stillness of your style insightful.

Sweetest starling, swift as sunlight.
Sprawling, spreading luminousness.
Scraping stratosphere and space height,
Sponsoring salubriousness.

Sweetest starling, swaying sadness.
Stripèd sails, they soar sublimely,
Seizing sovranty with broadness,
Sealing it so secretively.

Sweetest starling, seeming stronger,
Kiss me soft and set out flying.
Though supposed to strive for longer,
Sweetest starling's slowly dying.

    Gael, I like the line "Saturn stunned and Venus spiteful!" There is much to worship in our winged friends, isn't there. I envy their flight. As for the last line, please SAVE THE STARLING! Carolyn

    The construction of this poem works really well. I love the way that the sounds have been brought together to make a sensible and flowing narrative. That is not an easy thing to do. I don’t think the words (as meanings) are important in this poem, I think that it is the way that the word work as notes do in music that make this poem a special piece.
