Low Tones

Low tones softly

spoken almost hummed

hard to hear harder

to ask

to Speak Up play down

fears muttering or mumbling.

Might be mine ear stumbling

on muffled strings

of words that are strummed

words that maybe

sing possibly thrum muted

murmurings of love.



At dVerse, WhimsyGizmo would have us “Murmur something poetic in exactly 44 words, including some semblance of the word murmur. Get creative if you’d like, and have some fun with it, but please be sure some form the word “murmur” appears in your poem, and that your word count adds up to exactly 44, not including the title”.
