POEM LIKE A SONG

The lyric stands alone.
And no one can sing it
the same way every time.
The hook has a great rhyme
and the chorus never bores us.
The harmony of a haibun or haiku;
the tempo of a terzanelle,
the melody; meter and pace
puts us in a place where we
are blessed to be serenaded.
Celebrated in song,
sung in rhyme,
poem like a song
has me singing along.
