Before Moses was born he existed elsewhere,
You could call it an earlier home.
I won’t detail the ins and outs,
Go back to stick and stone.
When he ‘shot forth’ and was cast out,
Pharaoh’s daughter offered a bed,
In this new home he memorised,
The things that nourished his head.
The skull that formed within the womb,
His shelter before his birth.
Held the mind that caused a lot
Of echoes upon the earth.
Moses has a Hebrew name
Similar but really is Moshe:
Its letters are Mem, Shin and Hei.
Meaning born of spirit and water.
