Sweet Music to My Ears

We’re at the beach where seagulls soar.
All nature and sun’s warmth bring bliss.
I hear soft waves that lap the shore.
Sweet music to my ears is this.

At home, my cats lie next to me.
When cats are happy, they don’t hiss.
Mine sofly purr contentedly.
Sweet music to my ears is this.

The children are asleep in bed.
Their rowdiness I do not miss!
Sound’s silence falls on me instead.
Sweet music to my ears is this.

It’s late and time for some romance.
But first before we even kiss,
a favorite song for our slow dance -
Sweet music to my ears is this!

A lovely Kyrielle, Andrea! The repeated line is very effective. I love these types of forms which require repetition of lines, as long as they are ably done. Regards // paul

It sounds like the ideal life, Andrea, and when the song comes on in the last verse, it brings some memories. Very nicely written for the contest! Best for a win, Carolyn

This one has the cadence of a prettily built song, Andrea. I find myself singing it.

Loved your verse Andrea, used to love it when the kids settled down, the sounds of silence. Tom.
