  • Of Three
    by Michelle M. Mead

    Muses three -- Laughter and Sincerity
    with Beauty, so they all shall be --
    our nature’s fine serenity

    Laughter’s glow of sunny days
    and simple happy careless ways
    give magic to the everyday
    inspiring us to live and play

    Sincerity, so pure and good,
    listens and speaks the way she should
    guiding hearts to truth and light
    on feathered wings of pure delight

    But Beauty takes the eye away,
    from Sincerity’s heart and Laughter’s play,
    and amuses the ear with a rousing tune --
    but leaves you sad and blue too soon

    Yet Muses Three remain as one
    until their work is finely done
    and something so divine’s begun --
    the artist’s block is overcome
