A Wishing Melody

I am singing to the night
A wishing melody
Knock open the flight
Of its measures so free
Enter the coming hours
With a singing to understand
Bring on thy night flowers
Inside my dream command

Encaging picture walls
And streets I am walking
The inside shadow’s halls
That daylight all are lacking
I feel you know the fact
That reality has eaten up
In each its conduct act
That makes doggerels – yup

I am singing on to you
Through shallow gone ways
And ask you to renew
What in your musing plays!
I am singing to the dawn
A desiring lyrically
That each its color be drawn
In love songs – eternally

*From, http: //en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lyric_poetry:

“Lyric poetry refers to either poetry that has the form and musical quality of a song, or a usually short poem that expresses personal feelings, which may or may not be set to music”.

Thus, if you are writing lyrics, you are probably writing lyrical poetry.
