A different choir


A different choir:
donkey brays
cattle low
sheep bleat
wood creaks

out in the fields
the choir sings

in holy terror
terrifying songs
terrifying words

here in this quiet
dirty place fit
for animals
a different choir
a different chorus

a baby’s cry

this made me think
of his learning to speak
and the words of power
that he came to impart
