I am old as time and young as
this moment quickly passing on!
I am the cry of the wolf and the coo
of the morning dove.
I am ocean's roar and creeks
singing from the rocks
I am breath and wind and promise
bright of hope in the rainbow and
the wonder in the face of the child.
I am passion and works and
I am love and home and dreams
which soar on eagle wings.
I am the poem bursting to be born.
I am poetry a gift -
given to the world
