THE RATTLED PUZZLE

One day I sat in the rain meditating
On the music so dedicating,
My mind was somewhat rattled
With music confused and unbridled.

The rain dripped slowly on the sill
As notes from great music still.
There was a splash on the glistening glass
And I certainly noted a key change at last.

Then a sharp accent of sound
Touches my ears with quite a bound.
Click, in my mind there was a change
That ties up the song for my range.

Still rattling, my brain sings the song
That plays on the pane ever so long,
The staff and the key are clear
As I echo the music so dear
The clouds rush by, dropping the notes
That continue the song, maybe about boats.
The lightning like cymbals, gives off much brightness
The thunder like drums, doth rattle the pane,

Donít sneeze as you sing
Or youíll blow off that lovely ring
Of notes on that helpful pane of glass.
How long do you think this symphony will last?

ACHOO!!!!! ACHOO!!!!! ACHOO!!!!!

How fun! Sometimes it's quite impossible to keep that sneeze behind bars. Nice touch of humor. I liked it.

Verse three was my favorite, I think. You had some lovely details in there. Thanks for sharing! :)

I thought your poem was fun and I loved the rhythm in your poem that helped me to visualize the sound of the drops of rain on the pane. Well done.

I could almost see and feel the rain, and it makes for a great time to meditate. Good descriptions.

This was clever, fun, and meditative at once. Nicely done. God bless~
