Quest of Poets

Quest of Poets
The poet in passion
The poet in grace
The calling of the Muse
Heard within heart’s place
The word BE it a calling divine
In resounding silence the pulse of time
From lives lived this soul does speak
The word, the word, in wisdom sweet
The Wondrous, the Omnipresent, the Revelation, the Divine
The quest, the quest of poets within heart mine.

The Poet's Tidings
Each hour, each day, each year now past
A journey, a questing, a destiny cast
Awaken awaken to the vision yet held
Destiny and purpose in glory meld
The sounding heart with yearning real
Reverie and passion beyond conceal
The Muse calls to sound its claim
Beauty and Truth the poet to name
A blessed grace be it known, be it heard
'Tis the poet's tidings in heartfelt word.
