Birds(10 Short Poems)

Birds {10 short poems}

Oh, you little birds;
Happy to see you in your nest, so pretty,
so nice clinging to your mother’s breast

Wish my castle
Be like your nest where
God always rests

Wish to speak to you
In softest words, don’t shy away
As it pains me all the way

In a day, you will fly away
Sweet birds, up in the sky a happy fly
Not known to me your way

Only your songs
Treasured in my memory will
Chase you wherever you go and stay

Clear and blue is the sky
Grasses green and trees in leafage anew
You seem happy singing all day through

Such is the power of your
Liquid notes melting down darkness
Into dawn to greet the day-king at morn

Carry live orchestra on wings
Deliver priceless melodies at will, so tender
And serene that attract all to your ring

Always happy, through field
And forest you fly to where you care
Trilling your gratefulness to earth and sky you share

Oh, birds, tell me your secrets
Of happiness that I long for ever
Or carry me on your wings to Heaven
Where happiness flows ever and ever.......

ive read this one alot and on more than one occasion and i can never read it just once, i guess it makes you wonder just what each of us would do without anyone to help, i love your life eyes. ben
Susan...I was just wandering through some of your poems and came across this one. I liked it because of its simple narrative line and its larger metaphoric value, but I would cut the last, isolated line, leaving one at the moment of abandonment. Take care, John
You rock! Reminds me very much of Richard Brautigan...my favorite poet. I love it! ! !
Great, I loved it. I like the driver's madness and the absurdity of the situation. I hope it's a true story, that would make it even better. It reminds me of a time when a bloke knocked on my door and asked me what I wanted! Beautifully insane. Esra Sloblock
Great poem. Explains absolutely everything. Pittsburgh, Sus, the Galaxy, Saturday, and just everything. Also reminded me of the line, 'On the whole, I'd rather be in Pliladelphia.' Of course that was another end of the line.. Wonderful stuff.
