ALL THE LAWS WE CALL LINGUISTIC

The words of the Rig Veda are chanted

The revelation that the Rishis heard

Rhythmic hymns that Sarasvati granted

Written down as sacred text and word

The Rishis have been called visionaries

In more than one textbook that I have found

Writing from Eurocentric theories

Which teach that vision is more spiritual than sound

Sarasvati, Goddess of music,

Revealed Her wisdom through the sense of hearing

When all the laws that we call linguistic

Were melody and music and singing
