“Heart, We Will Forget…”

The last time I wept tears of joy?
That isn’t hard to share:
At my stepdaughter’s wedding, as
I’ve chronicled elsewhere

But before that? I’d say a concert’s
Where it last was done:
While listening to Copland’s
Eight Poems by Dickinson

The voice of the soprano, it
Just melted into air:
And lifted me in spirit
And transported me somewhere

To someplace otherworldy, joyful,
Beyond earthly fears:
Enveloped in the poetry
I shed
A few
Soft tears
