-Belonging Song-

                         ( Dedicated to my Sister Florence Grace
                              in Houston, Texas )

         They say a nightingale sang

         in Berkley square

         But last night I dreamt

         The Nightingale was sitting on my chair

         chirping its melodious song

         To my soaring soul

         and now its song is part

         of my being, to belong.
