drumming song

My dusty woven life rustled quietly

Tugging pulled stretched and gathered

Meeting yours and his and her song

All crowded joyfully and distracted

Through brightened streets washed with the rain

And pleasing laughter mixed with tears

Danced till time returned the partners

Washed down with glory not our fear

Joined by heart and hand’s soft treasure

And birthed by next to one another

Stand together side by shoulder

Seeking time and common measure

Till dusk do part our secret longing

Play and pleasure and all and done

Lift gifted head to cry exulted

To sing this blessed drumming song
