The Bells

observando:

I

Hear the sledges with the bells -
Silver bells!
What a world of merriment their melody foretells!
How they tinkle, tinkle, tinkle,
In the icy air of night!
While the stars that oversprinkle
All the heavens, seem to twinkle
With a crystalline delight;
Keeping time, time, time,
In a sort of Runic rhyme,
To the tintinnabulation that so musically wells
From the bells, bells, bells, bells,
Bells, bells, bells -
From the jingling and the tinkling of the bells.

Smart

I know it probably isn’t smart
To have given you my heart
In the small Scandinavian gift box,
With, now an incorrect return mailing address
And each time I’m in your room
I check to see if you’ve stowed it
Behind the plethora of notes and words I’ve already given you
I know it isn’t smart
To keep loving you with all of my unfortunate heart
And all that makes me, me
Granted, that heart is connected to a universe of internal chaos and large vocabulary, packaged in a small frame with big, beaming brown eyes
With words that can’t win word feud,
Because I can’t find the triple word score
Nonetheless, they don’t mean less
I know it isn’t smart
But matters of the heart rarely tend to be
