The Birds

 

How archaic it is to be a bird

The regimentation of pecking

The solidarity of perching

 

How archaic it is

To pierce the timelessness of time

And see old shadows buried in ancestral skies

And soar above a destiny

Of fleeting images gone by

 

How archaic it is to know

That one day

All this globe

Will be a nest for other birds

Celestial winged apostles

Of this ancient world
