Poems can ring, rise upon sun and moon
or bring momentum to an errant flame.
Maybe it falls face first, mangled too soon
its sound wailing against the sting of rain.
Dawn will singe your senses, set them all free
perform song and acrobatic dances
cry out in celebration, yours to see
Rhymes scatter silently like forgotten fancies.
The wilderness rings bright with poetic voices
Sublime and reverent sounds echo through the trees
Words of wonderment and great rejoices
Poetic dreams elope on shifting breeze.
Ideas and thoughts float light as a feather
Our words will often weave them lovingly together.

Sorry I didn’t manage the anagram bit.
