Shepherd’s Song

Your hour, my century,
said the mountain.

Your stone, my grief,
said the man.

Your words, my longing,
said the wind.

deliciously 'mystifying' verses, never daring to reveal who said what.

And you wonder why I'm moved to write verses here.

Thanks, Conrad. I think we all have a bit of the shepherd in us, and we certainly have the song. What we hear depends on our experience, and how good we are at listening. With that in mind, I hope I’m worthy of your response.

Said the lamb.
