Day 29 NaPoWriMo “Try writing poems that contain at least five words in other languages.” I chose Italian, although I don’t know it at all.  I started with a painting my son Dave created, his art can be seen at  www.amazedcreations.com

 

  “I love you more than a heart.”

my granddaughter said to my son.

It touched him so much he painted it.

My poetic tribute is now also done.

 more than a heart

 MORE THAN A HEART

 

Ti amo più di un cuore, in Italian

means “I love you more than a heart”.

That phrase coined by my granddaughter,

is a memory that will never depart.

 

Ti voglio molto bene, Maya,

I love you very much.

You are very creative

and have a gifted artistic touch.

 

You are mio prezioso ragazza,

which translates to my precious girl.

I’m grateful to live close enough

that I see your new skills unfurl.

 

Buon decimo compleanno.

Happy tenth birthday to you.

Remember to always be happy

in all you choose to do.

 

I’m blessed to be your Granny,

Sono felice di essere tua nonna.

Day 25 of  NaPoWriMo – “Let’s try a musical form — the ballad. Traditionally, ballads were rhymed poems that told a story of some kind, and were often set to music. If you have any musical talent, it might be fun to try and actually make a tune for your ballad!”  Here is what I sang on to my page this morning. I must now write down the tune before it leaves my head.

HEART SONG

 

What song do I hear my heart sing

as I greet this beautiful dawn?

A song of love or a song of joy,

like the birds sing every morn?

 

When our sun rises each morning

I will let my spirits rise too,

though I don’t know what the day may bring

or what I’ll be guided to do.

 

I can be happy regardless

of challenges coming my way.

I control my feelings and my thoughts,

I know I can have a good day.

 

Love is my constant companion

there is nothing I can’t achieve.

I need to apply my faith and trust

and be true to what I believe.

 

So what song is my heart singing

as I greet this beautiful dawn?

Its’ a song of love that’s filled with joy

I will sing like a bird each morn.

 

Repeat last verse.
