THE BIRD

THE BIRD  

The stone lay silent in the sun

Drinking the sun ray’s warmth 

Softly it lay on a velvet bed

Peaceful it gazed on the land

Then a bird flew by and cried

look at me, at my joyful flight

To see the mountains, all the seas

You must wish for a life like me

Never to feel the power of wings

To go wherever you like

Never to travel far and wide

That must be boring indeed

So tender the stone replied

In a voice dark with age

I have seen so much lying here

It would take me years to tell

Your life is a breath in the air

Fly as long as you can

I saw your forefather here  

I will see your child fly by

Your life is a breath in the air

Fly as far and as long as you can

I saw your forefathers years ago

I will see your children fly by
