Canada Korea Literary Festival

 

At the Canada Korea Literary Festival,

a well organized, professional event,

I had the privilege of reciting

and I’m very pleased I went.

 

A comprehensive printed program

in both languages, was provided,

(a souvenir worth keeping)

as through the evening we were guided.

 

The evening started with a reception,

very tasty food had been prepared.

Then, stories, poems, music, dance

and videos were all shared.

 

I haven’t heard much Korean spoken before,

I find it has a pleasing flow,

melodious sounds, soft-spoken.

It would be difficult for me to learn, I know.

 

Background music and slide shows

accompanied each performer.

Many hours spent putting it all together

had created an atmosphere much warmer.

 

My poem “Sixty Years Young”,

from my book Morning Light,

was translated into Korean

and a lovely lady was there to recite.

 

I think the two boys may have stolen the show –

wonderful talent – reciting and singing.

Then our MC surprised us all

when his powerful voice turned to singing.

 

Congratulations, KWAC!

It was a most enjoyable evening out

combining cultures and languages –

that’s what Canada is all about.

HEART SONG – a ballad by Jean Kay

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.
