life of lightning ,

Count the lightning back to the day of your birth
To bright burning bulbs held in silver globes
You had no words for

Crickets kept the time for you
And told the temperature
In some strange way
You learned of heat lightning
And the other kind
That connects the earth and sky
With one M I S S I S S I P P I
