Do you hear the mighty river flowing?

That’s my voice, that’s my voice


*

Do you hear the fierce wind blowing?

That’s my voice, that’s my voice.


*

Do you hear the wings of an eagle

Cutting through the night sky?

Or the pounding of the wolf’s paw

On the hardened ground?


*

That’s my voice, that’s my voice.

*

Speak gently

With razor-sharp tongue.


*

Strength in voice

Is always the calm

Holding back the beast.


*

Quiet I am…

Silent I’m not!


*

So if you hear the river flowing

The fierce wind blowing

The eagle’s wing in the night sky

The wolf’s paw on hardened ground,

Always remember...


*

That’s my voice, that’s my voice.

Lovely poem, Dean.

Doris James MizBejabbers from Beautiful South on July 09, 2019:

I really like this piece. I am not a great fan of poetry, but this one speaks to me. It sounds so native, so spiritual. There is truth inside.

Louise Powles from Norfolk, England on July 08, 2019:

I love the words to this. I particularly like the line 'quiet I am...silent I'm not!' Very true!
