Calm for the Soul

my-guitar-enhanced
Me in the 1970’s. I think I was 16. I still have this guitar!

Music ‘tis the calm for the soul

its lingering presence of tone

So sweet the sound, to which I’m bound

Doth keep me from being alone.

 

Refrain! I beg the timbered tone

Do not renounce these ears!

For with it not, the peace once sought

Is severed when once sincere.

  1. The rhythm or pace of “Calm for the Soul” is perfect. The words made me feel both at peace and invigorated at the same time. Like the photo.

    Lord Bless, Keep, Shine. . .
