The listener

Arabian Song by Paul Klee

He was a listener
Sometimes a bit adrift
Sometimes a bit restless
Sometimes a bit listless

But always listening
Above the lines
Under the lines
On the line

He had been listening all his life
So it seemed natural that he'd listen to her
And when he would speak it would be
about what he had listened

She listened too
Sometimes she was a bit adrift too
Sometimes she was a bit restless too
Sometimes she was a bit listless too

She was not a born listener
But life had taught her
That that is one of the best things to do
To listen

So here they were now:
Two listeners and silence
