Kennet Benoît-Hutchins 1952 (Snowdon, Montreal, QC)



for want of an Ear.

it is not the eye that sees

it is the heart that shares the need
nor does it matter how it does teach,
the soul has roots: for all to heed.

It is not solely rhythm
nor a sage’s want of language.
the soul hungers for its music.

for want of a beat, a sound giving breath to Hope. Life.
