Time, Tell Me

Tell me
Who you are
Time
Not by light
But sound
I listen
A child
Learning
An important thing
For the first time,
Rapt attention
Teacher
Your words
Gibberish
For now
Still filled
With meaning
But meaningless
For now
Time
Tell me
Who you are
With these birds
Whose names escape
Nests in flight
Higher
Higher
Higher
