Songs for the Soul

A song played on the radio
Sweet notes and simple words
Recalling happy times before
World-weary woes and hurts

Joy for joy I’ll give, thought I
Plunder smiles long buried deep
Into soft lyrics crystallized
That into other souls may seep

And comfort lonely dawnings
Soothe their sorrowing nights
Sustain the joyless mornings
And evening's dying light

To see beyond pretenses
The scarring of past wrongs
In music find forgiveness
And set them free in songs

I set my song free long ago
Sweet notes and simple words
I yet may find it still echoes 
In a stranger's healing verse
 


Feedback is appreciated, as always.

How nice to come back to LJ after over a week & find poetry waiting for me!

The second verse feels very 19th century, both with word choice and placement.

"Sweet notes and simple words"... love that line!

Hey there, fellow poet-in-training! I'd wondered where you'd got to! =)

Yes, I do get a little archaic sometimes. =) Thanks for commenting!

I've been rather prolific (for me) recently. Here they are if you're interested. =)
