...the call... The Call of the Muse

... the call...

Sounds, gestures, in word and song
The heart to be known does ever long
What words to say, what melody to sing
What is it that wills each word I bring
'Tis this life's purpose to be heard
Quest and vision cast in many a word
Paint, color, line and form expressed
The call of the Muse with brush caressed
Understand SELF, THE WAY, I to define
The Creator's Call within this soul mine.

Rose Marie Raccioppi
Poet Laureate
Orangetown, New York

Parnassus or Apollo and the Muses, c. 1640, Simon Vouet, French Baroque Era Painter, 1590-1649.
