Bard Preserves The Mystery
by Thomas Harris
Age Group: Adult
I am the quiet Bard who comes here
And stands unuttering amid the passing ones
Who worship the One Eyed God
In every shrine across the land
And thus cannot, choose not,
Who defiant of Nature do not
Hear my words.
I stand silent here among them
For now God/dess commands silence
To protect this ancient oral tradition
From those who profane purity
And turn their back on Her.
"Do not speak here, " She says to me,
But in sacred circles and spaces,
More appropriate places
Where Young One Eye is not
Awake day and night.
Sing to the plants along the roadside,
To possums and lizards.
Chant your chants to the songbirds
And hear their plainsong reply.
Pick up a wayward box turtle
And save the whole land,
This Bard calls out to the sky
And recalls when this Bard's audience
Was smaller than the Universe.
