Have You Ever?
Have you ever looked
Down on the earth
From the tallest mountain top?
Have you ever gathered
Sand and seashells
From the bottom of the sea?
Have you ever made a friend
From every nationality
And witnessed the birth of your own sha-baby?
Have you ever counted
The twinkling stars
In the dark midnight sky?
Have you ever kissed
Your one true love
In the wild pouring rain?
Have you ever spoken a word
From each nationality
And rocked in the chair with your own sha-baby?
Have you ever walked
Through a meadow
Of tall prairie flowers?
Have you ever listened
To the cypress trees
With moss that is hanging?
Have you ever prayed for peace
For each nationality
And taught the words to each of  your sha-babies?
Author's Notes:
This is dedicated to Alison Storm Wolf and to your sha-baby.  Sha is a French word and is actually spelled 'cher but it is pronounced sha so that's how i spell it.  It is a word that softens the meaning of the sentence and it means dear or dear one.  It is especially used in reference to our little ones, our babies and our grandbabies.  We want the best for them so we tell them stories and rock them to sleep in the rocking chair....and we teach them the gentle ways with prayer.  All of those other things that you might have done pale in comparison to the things you do and the time you spend with your sha-baby!   So, Allison,  i hope you have many  opportunities to share your gentle ways with your sha-baby!  Your friend, LindaJo

Dear Linda, Thank you for taking the time to explain to me what a sha-baby is...
I am most moved that you have dedicated this poem to me and my little sha-baby Nizhoni (native American for beautiful)
The magic of the world opens up again when we have our little sha-babies to think about, love and cherish. I do appreciate this kind gesture, thanks again.

I am not sure what a sha baby is but I loved the imagery.
