Take your scroll and write
the words that I shall speak
one book of all poets
the eastern edge of anguish
rising, meaning must await
revelation of creation
to teach us what we think
written relief, forever
transmissible, a holy text
that awakens men and women
weaving the themes of life
missive of many voices
tapestry of song unfurled
standard held against ages
and the history of man.
