For The Love of Mules

April 20, 2015

Oh we were warned to hold back
By low voices ignored
caught up in the busy noise
by successful speedy boys

It’s so easy to forget
just how good we have it
when the past is kept dead
like a word left unsaid
like a writer left unread
like a bullet with no lead
like a winter underfed

And I may look young
but this I’ve learned
it’s the quiet voice
that cares for the crops
to last long down the road 
it takes a mile for the train to stop…

And it takes a trained ear
to ignore the busy streets
and carry on free and humbly
for them I make this plea

I may look young 
but this I’ve learned
it’s the quiet voice
that cares for the crops 
to last long down the road
it takes a mile for the train to stop…
