The Song of Grace

I did
Hear my
Angel sing;
The song
Of love,
The song
Of grace.

img_1340_400Her lovely
Eyes, and
Shinning
Face,my
Little angel
Filled with
Grace.

The
Pitter
Patter
In the
Streets,
The lusty
Barter with
Their feet,
Among the
Rusty dirty
Ways,in
In these
Cold and
Hungry
Days.

In
These
Angry
Dirty
Days,
The
Hungry
Stand
For
Their
Demands.

Amongst
The wrenching
Of the hands;
My heart
Did fill
With
Love
And joy.

For I did
Hear my
Angel sing;
The song
Of love,
The song
Of grace.

When
We stand
Upon that
Day;in the
Shinny
Pearly gates,
The saint
Will ask,
The saint
Will sing;

"Have
You heard
The angel
Sing? The
Song of
Love?
The song
Of Grace?"

Wonderful poem with Dantesque echoes, for Beatrice was also Dante's saving grace...

Simply and Complexly Beautiful, Dear Nikos Laios. Thank you !

Thank you for your kind words dear friends.When I wrote this poem,it was after a moment of meditation and prayer, and in that one moment I could feel the world and it made me cry for joy.Then I put pen to paper and this poem came out as automatic writing.I wrote it within ten minutes. I Wanted to create a new poetic prayer that was universal. Thank you for liking my poem
