A Birthday, A Song
A birthday is a song,
the voice of the born speaking strong.
A life-bringing rhythm -long
as the time it is heard.
With every rhythm drawn out,intending to never fade,
Every drum coming sounds unlike the drum which came
Not one can beat as another
or be displaced by another's name.
Recollection of an individual sound
is recollection of a heart; the rhythm of a life
A celebration, a birthday, a song-being profound
to never allow the memory of another to fade.
