Along came a star – Dedicated to Fado

Post read 819 times.

Will that my ears hear
the tale of the birth of a star,
how the skylines gave way
and along came a star.

Will that I seal these doors,
these doors of deathblows drumbeat,
drumbeat of dreamy doses.

Will that I seal these windows,
these windows of whispering whines,
whines of whimpering wails.

Will that I make loose
the knotted ends of this singing ribbon,
that the song of being
shall be heard the town over.

A song sung today
as on the day that you be.
a song of synecdoches,
sounds and singing symphonies.

Will that we merry and cheer
for the day of your birth is here.
