Concerto Leah in D Major
Your name means Light of the Sun in Celtic.
In Hebrew it meant Tired and Weary
which you refused to settle for
so walked to Viking hills and Norman valleys
the passive melancholy you would not accept
the way of resignation, not on your watch.
Then you walked across the ocean to the territory
of the Cree, Blackfoot, Metis and Nakota Sioux
whose ghostly songs haunted the mountains.
Your seven children are Patience, Mindfulness,
Stealth, Inquiry, Justice, Vigilance
And now you will travel back to the Saxon,
Gaul and Viking winds that taught you
to never give in.
So rest when you can. Restore your passion
the crescendo of your dreams
the a Capello chains in your ear
rising to the Concerto
that is your life.
