Elation for Days


Speak quietly. It helps to soothe the nerves.
Yelling –– any harshness –– is abrasive ––
An agitating force no one deserves
Denying peace, obnoxious and invasive.
Refresh the soul with calm, sweet introspection.
Opening the mind clears out the dross.
Find serenity under prayer’s direction.
Needs depart, as does the pain of loss,
Only when we lift our thoughts to Heaven.
Images of all that’s bright and clean 
Transcend gloom and sagging spirits leaven,
As on the rock of Truth we safely lean.
Leave resentment, fear, distrust behind;
Endure with patience, and sweet peace you’ll find.

  2. My recent "uplifting" post didn't garner many comments, did it?

    Oh, well.

    My blog, my choice as to what to post.

  3. Would anyone care to analyze and then describe the STRUCTURE of this poem?

    It is a SONNET. I'll give you that much. There's more to it than that, however.
