Slow Sonata

Give rest to the riddle, leave the puzzle undone

The end can be traced to a badly placed pun

Able hands may crack under the sun

Whispered words, uttered like a walk in the park

Unheard, misread, lost in the dark

Heaven forbid, the arrow misses its mark

The melody rings true, the song of a lark

Grains of sand upon the open hand to brew

Mindless actions one may rue

Kind words spoken without a clue

A loving wish just may come true
