Ma yiguirro built a nest
laid eggs that hatched
tediously fed her brew
pichones grew, finally
opened wings and flew
life’s meaning is a cycle
round of days or years
events repeating selves
built in recurrence flow
theme that together all
holds, melodic subject
common element root
inflectional paradigm
formative stem directs
though invisible, elects.
