her working melody

how is it, sir
that still you have not heard her voice
though she speaks
and
though she sings?

fear not, 
for surely one day you will hear
perhaps through a crowded room
as she sings her song for me.

how clearly and how suddenly
her words and working melody 
will come to hold their true meaning

when they are no longer sung to you.
