The nature of music

If Music Ever Died

by Poetic Friend

If music ever died,
what would we miss the most?
The earth has many songs
that range from coast to coast.

The seas would be devoid
of chatting gulls on shores
and serenading waves
upon the ocean floors.

The skies would dim and sob
if robins sang no more.
Who would remind the sun
to do its morning chore?

The arms of trees would wilt
if wind forgot its sound,
for leaves would lose their dance
if tunes were not around.

The balconies would hush
if chimes refused to ring
their normal crystal trills
on breezy nights in spring.

Recitals would conclude
if instruments that starred
were muted of their notes
and melodies were barred.

The greatest loss would be
not hearing chords of those
who serenade our hearts
and kiss away our woes.

So much the world would lose,
and bareness would rejoice
if music ever died,
and nature lost its voice.


"The earth has music for those who listen"
