'Tis Music I Hear

'tis music I hear
the cresting waves of the sea
the tides that ebb and flow
the lilt of the songbird
the whispering melodies of the wind
the crescendo of galaxies afar
the light refrain of the heavenly stars
'tis music I hear
the babbling brook
the rain at my window
the crisp crackle of autumn leaves
the silent song of winter's snow
the awakening melodies of spring's light
the warm serenade of the summer sun
'tis music I hear.

  1. Silence and nature's sounds continue to hold fascination for me, and so, yes, 'tis music I hear.

  2. Its PERFECT ! Music is there in every atom, provided one knows the language of music, which is musical and nothing but musical. Your thought waves are musical and so it is lingering in my ears through this beautiful poem.
