mother tongue

October 6, 2016

speak to me any way you can
but sing to me in your mother tongue

there to hear the soil,
the honey,
the shadow and the light,
the sand and the velvet,
the bird and the beast,
the howl and the whisper

there to hear the weep and the giggle,
the caress and the slap,
the guts and the glory,
the loss, the break,
the joy,
the triumph,
the regret and the distance

there to hear the home and the hearth,
the stone and the wine,
the graft,
the harvest

speak to me any way you can
but sing to me in your mother tongue
