Mozart Smiles

Poem By Steven Federle

feverish movement
a circle of light
in the darkened hall

oboe and flute
puff and strain
to maintain with
swaying violins, violas
and cellos pounding
out soul,
beating heart
of timpani

while lost in time,
arms waving
shoulders hunching,
hands slashing
the glittering air,

Mozart smiles.

Angels rise to pure atmosphere
and call us to share
their freedom.

Wind - Chimes

clamor in the night.
Breezes rush
through unseen leaves.


The generals line-up, war-plans
in withered hands, ready to strike
the children.

Leap Of Faith

You've decided
that you want me,
and so commanded
flashing angels


In the psalms of night birds
in the bright morning trees,
I hear your song echoing,
overwhelming me.
