Rookie (Ethiopia)

! ! Rocking lullaby! !


A lullaby as silence sings
Back and fourth the soul swings
Caressing and with gentle embrace
A lullaby as silence plays
Away from its mortal shell
Within its realm the soul dwells

By rocking moves as silence beats
In calmness the soul exists
Silence sings its lullaby
With wings of joy the soul flies


Senses and reason to bring close
In lullaby silence rocks
Reasoning mind senses listen
Real becomes the world within

Need of the flesh the soul’s demand
To intersect as one to stand
Calm serene and soft lullaby
Knot our being to entwine

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
