The Weeping Lyre
 
Songs wrapped around tender strings
As angels weep and heaven sings
As lyres melt into liquid love
And love swims into paradise above
 
Oceans mount from tears in their falling
Passions stirred from Polyhymnia’s calling
Sacred songs where the rivers flow
Water sanctified where the angels go
An ode to music and its eternal voice
Where lyres weep and souls rejoice
