96th MUSKETEERS' TITLE CHALLENGE, RESPONSE TO RICHARD..EVERY HEART SINGS A SONG INCOMPLETE, UNTIL...

a poem by Rita Joyce Singh, India

At first it felt arbitrary
When he whistled the Auld Lange Syne
Thoughts clamoured, each momentary
Too surprised was I to define

Old heart marvelled in confusion,
(Till it dawned) with grace to skip beat
Dawned that this was intuition
Finishing a song incomplete

Not up to partying all night long
We preferred to be home alone
Where heart hummed old Rabbie Burns' song
On New Year's Eve, quiet, at home

Silent my song faltered at line
'We two have paddled in the stream'
When out he interjected fine
As if midnight wished us to team

And though my heart sang incomplete
'Til whistling soulmate had me caught
It made my New Year that much sweet
Could...old acquaintance...be forgot



Note:
Dear Richard,
Bravo for an excellent, genius title..I often sing in my head and it is more than mere coincidence that Inder can interrupt the song aloud..I call it empathy..We wish you and all acquaintances on VN a safe, healthy and calmer New Year..love to all. rita.
