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.

Mothers told a bedtime tale
of quiet thoughts with loving prayers
while, outside, the thunder rolled and
when her wounded hunter fell
or her warrior was lost at war,

a mother and her baby rocked
to peaceful hums and gentle song.

    Beautiful..... I'm sure it is very possible that poetry evolved from soothing an infant to sleep. What a lovely thought this is. :)
