IF THINGS COULD SPEAK
If things could speak I wonder what they'd say?
What's cried by ravens rising with the day?
Or growled by restless lions behind zoo bars?
Or bellowed by a bull in some far field?
What secrets could be whispered from the stars?
Old mother earth revolving through the hours?
In buried, ancient stones what tales are sealed?
What's written in the shapes of fruits and flowers?
What's felt by worms that feed on fallen leaves?
What songs are sung by dolphins in the seas?
A storm wind whistling through the swaying trees?
What meaning's hummed by sunwarm, buzzing bees?
What words would echo from the boom of thunder?
If only things could speak to us, I wonder?
