It is in us

It is in us that there are
all the rivers and the seas
all the colors of the rainbow
all the calls of the wind
all the beckoning buds of Spring
all the blooms of Summer
all the splendor of Fall
all the reverie of Winter
It is in us that there are
all the sounds
all the light
all the emotion
all the music
The music, the music
of passion
of quest
of thought
of resolve
The embrace of
The music, the music
the lure be known
rapture in the touch
soul sublime.
