Rhymes, Rants & Accolades from North Central BC

April 25th Poem by Doris

Prompt: to use “anaphora” (repetitive wording) such as in Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech

“Go back to Mississippi, go back to Alabama, go back to South Carolina, go back to Georgia, go back to Louisiana, go back to the slums and ghettos of our northern cities, knowing that somehow this situation can and will be changed…”

Music’s the language of the soul

Whether it be  Tchaikovsky

Hank Williams or

“Old Black Joe”

 

Music’s the language of the soul

reliving thoughts

and feelings

experienced long ago.

 

Music’s the language of the soul

lyrics and melodic

combinations

intricately enscrolled.

 

Music’s the language of the soul

Elvis Presley and

Michael Jackson

universally known.

 

Music’s the language of the soul

In  fellowship

we process

The language we all know.
