Have You Ever
Have you ever heard   
How a volcano sings?   
Or have you ever spread   
Of love the tender wings?   

But maybe you have felt   
As if you have been drowned? 
Or even you have whispered   
Of love the heart-bound sound? 

I guess you haven't kissed   
One's ethereal soul   
Nor have you ever missed   
Somebody's ghostly call   

I know you've never heard   
Nor have you ever spread   
I gather what you've felt   
Is not what you have whispered 

I dare not think aloud   
You waste so dear a gift   
I doubt that you've found   
I wonder if you've lived?
