Bird is the word

Swift like the swift I’ll wander about No manner of fear or doubt Will stop my fancy flying high Meandering across the blue sky   Singing like the nightingale does Of rivers and lands and desert fortress Of grasses green and water clear My voice won’t just disappear   Dive like the kingfisher in search […]

Yet the strength of your thoughts and […]
