Soft Murmuring Sound

Soft murmuring sound

A soft murmuring sound,
From a deep hidden place
Perpetual pulsing
Never stopping to rest

Never given to pause
Oft-time given to race
This most sensual organ
Enclosed in sanguine breast

Tis truth, it can shatter
Yet remain tearfully intact
burst with pride and affection
And in anger react

Able to flutter
Able to ache
Able to pine
Able to break

no sensory cells
Has this wondrous thing in our chest
Yet this soft murmur of sound
Gives us soul…and we’re blessed
