Somebody sang a song.  Song
moved on air
across land, across water.
It was heard far away.

The song sounded
in ears of another.
It brought a voice, sweet
as amber honey
and saying something.

That song
made a stranger’s eyes widen.
That song
entered the heart of a lover.
in the House of Memory
dipping one finger
into a rainbow
into a puddle of gold
remembered the song.

This is how I began
at dawn of day
at the origin of time.
An unknown singer
an Orphic voice
singing to life spontaneously.

Song on the wind!
That is how I will end:
a well in a circle
reflecting a rainbow.
