Today’s prompt is to write a poem titled “Play _Blank_”
Play Me for a Fool
by Beth Weaver-Kreider
Play me for a fool and I may seek for wisdom
Play my secret songs and I will hear your voice
Play the wind against my hair and I might sigh with pleasure
Play the tired longings of a thousand hearts
Play the ancient rhythms of the forest
Play the wild music of the stars
Play the quiet dreamings of a toad in summer rain
Play the simple melody of childhood’s happy hours
Feels like it needs another stanza with a shift in rhythm and a last word, but I am falling asleep.
May we walk in Beauty!
