Listen

Listen in the night –
Can you hear it?
The roll, the beat
Of distant drums
As ancient as my soul,
Calling,
Calling,
Drawing me near…

Listen in the night –
What can it be?
The song, sweet music
Of ancient orbs
Far beyond this Earth,
Calling,
Calling,
Drawing me near…

Dance in the night
Beneath the full Moon!
On your toes, in the air,
Angels on the wind,
Flying from star to star,
Calling,
Calling,
Drawing me near…


One Response to “Listen”

  1. Written in the early 1980s. This is actually one of my earliest poems presented here. It reflects a youth’s desire to break from the sheltered life I’d always led and experience more of life.
