I Hear My Sons

I Hear My Sons

A Poem by Baz

I hear my sons everywhere...


my sons are always with me
and this is how i know
i can hear them all around me
everywhere i go:

in the rattle of a window
in the pounding of the rain
in the wailing of a siren
in the screeching of a train

in the happiness of laughter
in the terror of a scream
in the crashing of an ocean
in the babble of a stream

in the roaring of an engine
in the whisper of a word
in the crying of a baby
in the twitter of a bird

in the yelping of a puppy
in the playing of a band
in the gurgling of water
in the clapping of a hand

in the crashing of a cymbal
in the banging of a gong
in the melody of music
in the singing of a song

in the one we are together
in the four we are apart
in the love we have between us
in the beating of my heart

I actually penned several more verses; though not in the same vein; in any case, it is entirely consistent with the oft times capricious female of the species, to have a foot in both camps. :))

Utterly, utterly enchanting.

Ordinarily Charlie I are at church this time of the day, but the snow has come down really hard, and living where I do, it's a two mile or so journey on a narrow country road, so I am enjoying your work, and other good poets, instead.
