MAYA
______________________________

Maya, sing a joyful song
A wailful song
A knowing song
Maya, sing a poet's song
I hear the poet's voice

Maya, give to me another
This time sing it like my mother
Maya, give to me another
Poet, speak a poet's voice

Maya, write about the truth
A painful truth
A lover's truth
Maya, write a poet's truth
I hear the poet's voice

Maya, give to me another
This time write it like my mother
Maya, give to me another
Poet, speak a poet's voice

Maya, tell a loving tale
A sinful tale
A sing-song tale
Maya, tell a poet's tale
I hear the poet's voice

Maya, give to me another
This time tell it like my mother
Maya, give to me another
Poet, speak a poet's voice
