Poem - Listening for Selah

A new poem, probably to appear on the CD package:

Listening for Selah

In the beginning was the Song,
and everybody danced.
then Song gave birth to Words.
Faith spoke what it sang.
In the rhythm of time, the question arose:
which is better, Word or Song?
A silent battle muted all music,
and Word won for a while.
Each text lost its tune, and faith lost its heart.
Yet Spirit speaks in Song,
and from the seeds of Word, the Song is heard again.
For those with ears to hear, the heart will be revived.
For those with toes to tap, the dance goes off the page.
Everything shall dance again.
