Why is music so important? I touch on the subject, briefly, in this blank verse.
The Battle of Music
by J. Randal Matheny
The battle of music must be fought,
The war of mind above the heart;
We sing to teach and not to stir
Emotions, for praise and not a show
Of talent. When feelings drive the song,
The powerless cart’s before the horse,
And gone the Spirit’s force in words,
And drowned divine sustaining thought.
Blank verse means it has meter, but doesn’t rhyme. Hope you’re not disappointed. …
