Perceptions Of An Infant - Poem by Paul Amrod

Orientating itself upon the tones of its mother's heart
Instantaneously recognizing the rhythms of the universe
The continuum of polymetrics with a pulsar's counterpart
brought its energies to an epitome through love's sweet curse.
Through a cosmic metamorphous state evolving constantly
transforming to an embryo in mother's bosom thriving forth.
Construing each event and phenomena with its God-given instincts
procuring a spontaneous wisdom to accompany its path henceforth
through each phase of development with gracious graces bestowed.
Impelling at birth the unblemished foresight innocently unconsciously
showering the surroundings with intuition and suaveness distinct.
The sophistication of a resource of natural reaction brings an episode
of astonishment in our eyes and earthly adornment from the north.
The falling of snows cleansed the eroded environment and purity
resided afresh the pine forests manufacturing a cradle as an abode.
The hand from Pleiades will rock it gently giving our infant security
to untangle the riddles of Nature and send messages quite conclusive.
The angelic baby perceives this dilemma and focused its antenna
on receiving this communiqué with savoir-faire to earnestly devote
to this quandary, eventually with perseverance while being unobtrusive.
With its glances and remembrances of a sacristy it underwrote
the eloquent speakers unheard for their commentaries, elusive
and misunderstood, nonetheless the nursling brought clarity.
The inhumane parodies are dismissed in their entirety
superseded by the virtues of righteousness and inculpability.
Through perfection of growth and forthcoming birth
its integrated essence is the infant's preference this Earth.
Why is modern life so perpetrated with rules and regulations?
Our original habitat was Nature and a hut in a worldwide nation
exemplifying ethological principles in the basis of common dignity.
The warmth and affection is a prerequisite of permanence to impart
durability and tenaciousness necessary for our mutual admiration.
The internal euphoria is risen and a purpose becomes inspiration
to interweave our cooperation with endowments at nativity.
The implications are bounteous and uncountable exceeding
our imaginative capacity from our enlightenment to the start.
In its utter silence may come a whimper from our suckling in reaction
to the rumble of everyday commotion while it is proceeding
to its advancement reminiscing the astuteness of perspicacity.
Enthralled as an exuberant recipient of sensibility interceding
with its inherited perception the Christ child was named King.
Alone was his warmth and aura with shepherds and chastity
which impressed the solemn visitants at his manger to sing.
Clothed humbly while the Star in the east shone in totality
the oriental masters shook their heads in wonder to gratefully accede
reveling this infant as the foreseen prophet of all eternity.
The prince of the galaxy became an orator of supreme excellency
awarding us with proverbs reminding us all of our infancy.
Giving us the perfect boulevard to the golden gates with propriety
which we once did possess as a wide-eyed child in all certainty.
Reflecting upon the remorseful state of affairs we must succeed
to revolutionize the prognosis with an intrinsic conviction.
Deploring the invasion of our liberties and our intimacy
asking for reverence of our irreproachable substance in heed
of mutual complacency and the glorification of our collectivity.
