The Beauty Of Music

Poem By Shalom Freedman


The beauty of music
Means more to me in feeling
Than I can understand-
I cannot explain how sharp and deep this music is-
My mind is too plain
Plain as death-

But the feeling
The feeling is so beyond so beautiful
So tinged with longing loneliness sadness
I cannot understand it
The beauty of music
Is feelings which go beyond my understanding
It pains me and brings me joy in longing
Beauty- I do not understand

All I Wanted Was Poems

I didn’t want other kinds of words
I wanted poems
Because they helped me feel more alive
They gave me an intensity

Many have won prizes

Nothing Tells Me How To Begin Again

Nothing tells me how to begin again
Or even how to try

And how can I expect to do at the age of seventy- five?

I Must Continue To Write

There will always be another poem
And with that poem- hope
However absurd-
So even if I despair
