Oh skies

Oh skies let me touch you
Give me an assurance that tomorrow
Shall be a sunny day;
Give me a little sign
That after all this disillusionment
I shall live in your umbrella

Oh skies smile at me
Do not you sulk at me;
My soul is cold, my heart is hurt-
A smile and I shall get warm
A smile and I shall feel wonderful,
Oh skies.

Oh skies give me a hope to live on
So when the world
Shall break under my feet
I shall call you to my rescue
I shall call you to my help
Oh skies give me the hope to live on.

Oh skies keep me in your watch
So whenever I do stray
To limits forbidden by natural law

Oh skies let me be yours,
My soul, my heart, all I give you.

    You transmit the hue of your actual voice through an invocation to the skies. In the write I thought of a 'Helenique touche' -the sponde- and the emptiness of the skies that fills a soul. G.

    I think you should look at the form kryielle, it's a form which uses repetition [as you have] and calls to mind prayer...I think this would be an excellent kyrielle with some tweaking, as you know I LOVE starting lines with "Oh," to me it shows JOY. Light & Love

    When I am feeling down or destitute, Honesty, I often look to the skies and engage in a conversation with God to seek guidance. Nice work! Love, Carolyn
