What Is A World without A Woman's Voice?

What Is A World without A Woman's Voice?

A Poem by Louis McKraker



      The touch of the hand and the sound of the voice

      Sing on alway. -Spencer Michael Free


(I)

What is a world without a woman's voice?

I shutter to think it might be something like this:

A soul immersed in the waters of remorse--

Lost beyond all doubt, and bleeding from the wrist.


(II)

What is a world without a woman's touch?

Dare I utter it might be something like this:

A wound knowing neither empathy nor crutch--

Without care, without bandage, without stitch.


(III)

What is a world without a woman's kiss?

I suffer with thoughts it might be something like this:

A world with no blue skies above--

Where we stand in mourning for all that is amiss.
