Lyrics, the words of a song or a lullaby are partly responsible for helping us to learn the melodies of language. Worldwide young children react to the calming effect of vowels uttered in a repeated meter. The pulse and rhythm of such vocal pacifiers are often intertwined with the calm breathing pattern of the speaker. That is power, power in sound, words, melody, and meter. Such experiences are just the beginning of developments we often take for granted. Songs and lyrics fill my head, my writing and my heart. Sometimes I write lyrics and melodies, sing them, or just listen to those that surround me. They have the power of the muse to inspire me, carry me away to unknown territory, let me wade in purifying waters, cry out in joy or protest. They let me dance.
