Experiment 12

Words and Sound

Words and Sound

Upon this murmus of the vocal cords
Are handed out between slivers of pallid lips
Sounds apparently, then we are all sound full
Since we comprehend.

Easy reverberations that in distress fall hard
Sounds and meanings in music we understand
the Musician and composer speak
But we within our short ambience
Interpret for ourselves and do not understand
But verbally take in monosyllables
Break Polysyllables to these

Meaning and sound and unity
In common sounds, meanings too
The ranging human cord is similar
In the jagged movement of sound through atoms
To the earth and sky, wind and see
let me place my ear and
understand the sounds of earth.
