Passage to Understanding


You spoke a noun to me
I spoke a verb to you
In the process simple words
became complex.

Said I to you
'Don't you see? '
Said you to me
'I see, do you? '

I spoke a verb to you
You spoke a noun to me
Somehow a smile ensued
words became less complex

Said we together
lets just laugh, maybe sing
the point is to be heard
and understood.

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
