More

Sometimes life brings us showers, But showers bring us flowers And flowers bring me joy. Singing and dancing in the rain bring me joy. But you bring me more. More than Beethoven, Brahms and Mozart, More than the red robin and the swing in the park, More than skating on the frozen lake floor, You bring me more. More than paintings by Van Gogh, More than seeing the sparkling white snow, More than gazing at the moon out my door, Yes, you bring me more. More laughter and smiles Across a thousand miles. More magical feelings and fun, And in my heart lives the warmth of the sun Because you bring me more.

Simply succulent poetry, Carole. From the succinct title to the romantic refrain ... you bring me more. A comparative phrasing that illuminates your love for the object of your affection. The weaving of the tapestry of culture ... nature ... and innervisions expressed makes this a gem of a poem. Really was moved by this poem. I can sense it was a labor of love. Star bright write. Love and joy always.

I think this write is as sweet, lighthearted and lyrical as sunshine is warm. It is a skip thru the highs of love, the joys and sparks of love and could be aimed at anyone who is loved from a grandparent to a spouse. I enjoyed it very much, I felt like I was frolicking thru the greenest of soft, green grass. A joy to read, Carole - r u thinking of doing 'more'/something specific with it? Poetry hugs ... CayCay

Thank you for reading, Vijay. Actually, I wrote it as a song but then changed it to "couplet" but I think it would make a nice song. Carole :D

Thank you, Darren. I didn't realize I had placed in another contest. Yay! lol Anyway, I'm glad you liked it. Also, thanks for recommending Mark Massey to me for composing the music to one of my poems: "Be Careful" Check it out even though it still needs a little revising. I really love writing lyrics and I might ask him to compose some music for "More". Carole

Hello Carole, An extraordinary lyric here!! I certainly agree with Mike Clarke's comments too (below). Your build out and expressions starting from the fifth verse (first stanza): "But you bring me more," for me, are both exquisite and enchanting with the combination and integration of words, tone, and imagery that you use. And your final verse completes the whole image of this lyric. This is really a beautifully done lyric. SEVEN/FAV/!! Continued Best Wishes, Gary

Hi Carole, a wonderful lyric. More, you keep writing like this and you shall bet more and more adulation for your writes. This one sings so gently into the heart. Such an excellent song. If there had been more i for one would have read on happily. Your pen runs gold Carole. This has to be a seven. Hugs....Mike. XX
