Orpheus with his Lute Made Trees by 

Orpheus with his Lute Made Trees

by William Shakespeare

Orpheus with his lute made trees,
And the mountain tops that freeze,
Bow themselves, when he did sing:
To his music plants and flowers
Ever sprung; as sun and showers
There had made a lasting spring.

Everything that heard him play,
Even the billows of the sea,
Hung their heads, and then lay by.
In sweet music is such art,
Killing care and grief of heart
Fall asleep, or hearing, die.

    I like this . . . . it begins as a soft iris and end as a forest of thorns . . . . but there is always the welcoming luxuriant centre

  • Thanks so much for the well thought-out comment…..I really enjoy seeing what people see in my work.
