Calliope--By Christine Tate--United States


The heavenly calliope
God's ballad of love,
an ethereal melody
sent down from above.
It permeates the spirit
and the mind consoles,
fills one with peace
and soothes the soul.
The ear finds pleasure
and His children rejoice
upon hearing the sound
of God's beautiful voice!

(Calliope means "beautiful voice")

Christine Tate has been writing since 1994. She's the mother of 3 sons and has 8 grandchildren. She was widowed in 2007 and met her husband Artie, a widower with 6 children & 12 grandchildren, in a nursing facility where their mothers resided. They've been happily married 4 1/2 years. They describe their meeting as "God's divine appt." because of their faith, and the fact that they swore they'd never marry again.
