A poor singer who sang (S-o-C)


A poor singer
In Singapore
Had little to say
And so sang even more.

She sang in the mountains
She sang on the shore
“But, there are no mountains
In flat Singapore!”

She sang in the mornings
And all through the days
With a constancy impressive
“No mountains?” A voice, once again says.

‘Climb every mountain
Ford every stream…’ She opened a door
And with walking boots and a rucksack
Headed to Ulan Butor.

Now just why she went there
We just do not know
Perhaps they had a mountain
Where she could put on a show.

And when she arrived
She started to sing
And the people adored her
And made her their king.

Bogd Khan Uul
Was the mountain she found
And there she was happy
And found tranquility in sound.

Singing so softly
And calming all woes a
She may be singing there still;
She maybe, who knows?


One response to “A poor singer who sang (S-o-C)

  1. I enjoyed that, would you be interested in this project?

    We have 140 contributions to date, and I am trying again to rope in as many contributors to the Poets for Peace challenge (in place until this the end of August). The many voices in response to this have been fantastic, and I’d love you to add yours (again, if applicable) if you can. Feel free to use an existing piece of writing or a new one asking for peace and/or about the troubled times in which we live.

    If you are interested, please leave your poem in the comments section of Neha’s blog and it will be added. https://forgottenmeadows.wordpress.com/2016/07/16/calling-all-poetscreative-minds-to-a-grand-collaboration-poets-for-peace/comment-page-5/#comment-19287

    Thank you –
    Your voice matters.

    ‘We are so grateful to be part of this community where poets and creative minds from around the world stand together uniting for PEACE! This collaboration is open till August 31st and we hope to see more of you join in!’
