A Poem: On Turmoiled Ground

On Turmoiled Ground

Child! Child! Rest your head upon pine bough drifts
Let moonlight guide dreams through rings of knitted web
Breathe a rhythm of lilac scented mourn
Awake! Wipe song of sorry gently from your parched lips

Child! Child! Dance swiftly across turmoiled ground
Haste not to greet the day unturned
Lay worries at bubbling river's bend
Sing! The heart beats for feathered friends

Child! Child! Hold tight to hope with fingers twisted
Remember youth from the depth of unfiltered sun
Place your bones in rocky soil upturned
Fight! For earth and reason are one

                                                     ~ R.L. Morgan
