Poetry Is Born

Long before the written word
in a sheltered hut,
a mother and her baby rocked
to peaceful hums and gentle song.
Long before a purposed rhyme,
in cadence to drummed hollow logs
or paired with trill of ivory flutes,
a mother and her baby rocked
to peaceful hums and gentle song.
Children told a bedtime tale
of quiet thoughts with loving prayers
while, there, outside, the thunder rolled,
and when her wounded hunter fell
or her soldier lost at war,
a mother and her baby rocked
to peaceful hums and gentle song.
