Rhythm Of Life
Rhythm is the source of life
by Harold Putnam
Basic to the throbbing flow
The tides respond on careful schedule
Our bodies flex as passions grow
Long ago I heard the pounding
Of rhythmic beaters on pure gold,
Turning out the wispy beauty
That gilded domes of history old.
All life responds to programmed rhythms,
The heart pumps out a steady beat,
The sun bursts forth on silent signal
And nature blooms with warming heat.
