the word, the verse, the poem
is your holy calling
the poem is your matron
and you are hers

the craft, the art, the telling
is your newfound way
reborn from many lifetimes
of humble servitude

the hearer, the teller, the poet
the audience is your sacred charge
and you are their loving mother
and they are your attentive children

all these things you are learning
and accepting with high grace
the word, the verse, the poem
and the poet... your true love
