Jungle Music

Trampling dry leaves under my feet,
Watching lonely trees before they sleep,
I sense that ocean of musty leather,
Making bamboo music between the creek.

Hear the jungle music
Under my feet,
Hear the jungle music
Before they sleep,
Making bamboo music between the creek.
Hear the jungle music,
Under my feet.

Hear the little girl moonlight
Dancing in her silver tunic,
Hear the gray fowl playing the pipe,
listen to the jungle music.

Hear the jungle music
Under my feet,
Hear the jungle music
Before they sleep,
Making bamboo music between the creek.
Hear the jungle music,
Under my feet.

A soundless leaf falls,
{hear the jungle music}
A nymph’s smile dissolves,
{hear the jungle music}
A silver thimble moon laughs
{hear the jungle music}

The wild peppered night choreographs.

Hear the jungle music
Under my feet,
Hear the jungle music
From the deep
Making bamboo music between the creek.
Hear the jungle music,
Under my feet.

Dry leaves, like thieves,
Jungle music,
Swaddled in silence,
Moss-green music,
In compliance
Jungle music
Moon’s angel face cherubic,
Jungle music
Dancing in her silver tunic,
Jungle music
{from the deep}
Jungle music
{from the deep}
Jungle music.
