  • Consider Well

    I give a sound to you

    A-coming from my mind,

    Saying, Peace, Friend,

    Consider well the muse I bring

    Until the rhythms of your own humility

    Resound in life's ring, and you

    Give a sound A-coming from your mind,

    Back to someone as human as you.

    Hi dumasfils.   I find "Consider Well" very moving.   In another way, I barely move as I consider.   To be genuine, to give a sound with meaning to another, there are things about myself I must take care of.   There are a few "beams" in the mix.

    I was very much a teenager and deeply in love with the stars and anything--science, science fiction and space comic books. My first writings were space novels, at eleven, but I was never more in joy when I got to high school and was looking up the definition of this word you reference. Its history changed so much in me as a writer and as a maturing youth. One word when its meaning is found can do many things...and so I write now about the many other words which ever shape and augment our musical souls. I love being in word...maybe you can tell. Anyway, I enjoyed your use of the word consider. May I share what enlivened me so many years ago regarding it. (Consider:  "to look at closely, observe," probably literally "to observe the stars," from assimilated form of com "with, together" (see con-) + sidus (genitive sideris) "heavenly body, star, constellation" (see sidereal) [a term we astronomy lovers use to navigate the stories about God in the heavens.] Thank you for your expressions, and the courage and maturity to advance your needs to people you don't know. So good of you.
