Sing Out – A Tanka

 

Open your mouth wide

And sing loud for all to hear,

Forget fear and pride;

Music is a gift, that’s clear –

Spread your tune to ev’ry ear!

I enjoyed Colleen’s Weekly Poetry prompt “gift” & “song” so much that I actually wrote a second poem – this one a tanka. I know I’m posting it after the deadline, but I still wanted to share!
