Melody of a Sentence


Melody of a Sentence

By David Smith October 23, 2013

“Cold day?  Isn’t it?”  I thought, I heard Elizabeth

He said it twice, so vivid and clear

Yet Elizabeth, the name; Kept bombarding against my ear.


O phrases have a melody and tune

To give it meaning; Poetry we spoon

Lapping up words with a rhyth-matic beat

It can be soothing and turn down the heat


Playing with words to make paragraphs flow

A gentle breeze on an ear drum we know

And hearing Elizabeth as ears perk up

It is the message we hear, we evaluate and such


Beyond the rhythm as comprehension grows

Clashing symbols and emotion flows

And how it sounds is not what’s understood

Words have to be digested to be any good
