MAGIC WORDS


BY NALUNGIAQ


In the very earliest time
when both people and animals lived on earth,
a person could become an animal if he wanted to
and an animal could become a human being.
Sometimes they were people
and sometimes they were animals
and there was no difference.
All spoke the same language.
That was the time when words were like magic
The human mind had mysterious powers.
A word spoken by chance
might have strange consequences.
It would suddenly come alive
and what people wanted to happen could happen ~
all you had to do was say it.
Nobody can explain this:
That’s the way it was.


Thanks to The Sun Magazine for publishing this Inuit poet in their July issue.
