A CAPPELLA

the music
in your
memphis
mouth --

the soft quality
of syllables
rolling
off your
sweet
tongue

melodies
spoken
in ordinary
conversation

hymns
sung
a cappella --
the roll
and twang
of words,
swayed

honeyed
and made
rich
and full

a pleasant drawl,
warm,
comfortable
as home

sounding
somehow
like summer
