Some music from the wonderful Astrud Gilberto!  It Might as Well be Spring

i am poet

i write hieroglyphics

and Beowulf

Wuthering Heights

and the Gettysburg Address.

 

i paint on cave walls

on parchment

sheepskin

subways and bridges.

 

i dance to words

play the lute of metaphor

harpsichord of discord

pipes of social conscience.

 

i speak to pathfinders

and zealots

peasants and

housewives

 

and i listen to what they say so

i can write it all down

 

on cave walls

parchments

sheepskin

on a little piece of napkin

in a small cafe.
