Read heart Poems Online



Strum, my child, lightly strum
To hear the voice of Apollo
In the melody of the lyre,
To fill a heart so hollow.

From Hermes' hand to Mine own,
Now bestown to thine,
Strum and forget your sorrows,
Disallow tomorrow's design.

Give no thought to what may come
For it rarely heeds our fears;
Strum, my child, lightly strum,
Taste the sweetness of your years.

Tears will fall, yet in the air about
The notes of the lyre will dance,
And as you strum the Muse will
Guide you in your trance.

Strum and see horns of plenty pour
A deluge to drown all sadness;
Bounty and beauty are my gift
To lift your soul to gladness.

Love the lyre as it loves you,
Bring joy to those around;
Strum, my child, lightly strum
And become lost in its sound.
