Poem of the Month, April 2016: Soul Music

SOUL MUSIC

Saturn’s gift is silence.
Uranus’ gift is truth.
Old age must turn the page,
Make room for restless youth.

Neptune’s gift is music.
Pluto’s gift is noise –
Voices over the wall
Of innocent girls and boys.

But what of ruler Mars
And far-out little Cheiron?
Do they house the souls
Of Shelley, Keats and Byron?
