WHAT MELODY

I would become more than
a writer of rhymes.

How find then the music within
that would lead to a sprinkling
of words like wildflowers
along a country road?

I want them to hear
the soft sound of violin and gentle guitar.
Enough others are planting noxious weeds
portrayed by the music they hear,
that of bugle and drum.
