"nascent knowledge"

Should I clear my throat to address you   will you listen?
where the mirror seeks to express you   will you listen?

having carried over the mountains   cloudy tales
when the breeze returns to caress you   will you listen?

one will wander roads where the foot is   born for travel
if the hand would gesture to bless you   will you listen?

whether seats are filled or near-empty   holds no bearing
do the poet's manners impress you?   will you listen?

conversation is the domain of nascent knowledge
where the tongue is prone to confess you   will you listen

Raphael has tarried in shadows   pondered echoes
weeping eyes might call for a tissue   will you listen?
