Drawing of a saxophone player by Laurie Childersa poem birthed with music is like a creature born with wings
it flies high and takes us with it,
cries a warning, or joy it sings
sweet joy it sings      

a poem birthed with music is like a creature born to swim
it can dive the depths of sadness,
float on love’s bliss, or dance this hymn
dance this hymn

these poems birthed with music are like a garden growing roots,
and branching forth, and ever blooming,
sharing color, scents and fruits
sharing fruits, sharing fruits

a poem birthed with music is like a creature born with hands
to put these fragments into beauty,
touch our souls, and guide us
through these lands
