and if you could not sing for me
i would seek the song of strangers
rather than live silenced
and if you desired to sing for me
but your words were taken
i would learn the songs of strangers
and sing you new words
and if you would sing with me
these songs, however
strange upon our tongues
still, would teach us singing
it is so quiet, and this silence
aches to be sung.
