David the Psalmist

Other Poems by Rich Tassinari

                    David the Psalmist

The lyre strings cry, and celebrate, and praise,
They sing of sorrow, thankfulness, and joy,
A sound that dances, comforts, mourns, and plays
Whenever singing hearts the strings employ.
Who hears the psalmist’s songs? ‘Tis He who made
The heart, the words, the music, and the strings,
Returning back to Him by he who played
To Him who gives the chant the psalmist sings.
Oh, hear his songs, our songs to touch the heart,
The heart divine, first heart, a heart of Love,
A sacred heart from which each song’s a part
Of words below that reach to Him above.
     Each psalm that rises from the psalmist gives
     The cry and joy of Love wherein He lives.

Rich Tassinari 8/19/14

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
