Language so loaded with subtleties,
infinite entendres, hidden plots betrayed,
and sometimes insidious scenarios conveyed
in the least wordplay.
Quite a contrast to the quiet of the wilderness--
or at least to ears unable to discern
the speak of birds and wind and babbling brooks,
as they too sometimes play these games,
and are involved in the dramas, lila and mystery
so sometimes surreptitiously woven into words.
The dance between tongues through history
leaves traces and clues
not merely of this peoples' dealings with that,
but also of tales of Gods and Goddesses,
grand romances and sublime secrets
and even the true emotive workings
of the Universal Divine.
Oh, and perhaps I ought to note:
words' subtleties can of course
be conveyance of subterfuge,
and might cast spells less than
Divine, empowering or enlightening.
Yet even those schemes cannot but reveal
the Universal Good Truth
they themselves seem to seek to shroud . . .
