Brothers In Arms

...inspired by 'Anthem' by Anthony Hecht The deft will fashion melodies and cast them to the wind, proclaiming hopes and verities, uplifting humankind; colours unbeknown'st to us will hover and distill, and splash 'til they're analogous to God's almighty will. We as students of the art would seek a kindred tone, interpret measures of the heart 'til grace and joy are one; re-create with strains mellifluous the stateliness of Brahms, sonorities of Mahler, artists, brothers in arms!

Hey there Keith! Another amazing piece...true to the Bickerstaffe form.:) I totally agree with Robin, if I started quoting my favorite lines, I'd end up rewriting the entire poem! A beautiful gift you had shared with all, on Valentine's Day. Wishing you the best...God's blessings! Love, Mikki

So glad to see your new posting! This is wonderful, Keith. I was going to quote phrases that I really like but I'd end up retyping about all of it! "Artitsts, brothers in arms" I love that! Writing for the common good! So nice to hear from you. Thank you, Keith. Love and hugs, Robin
