Swallow Song

The swallows
Swirled among willows
Weeping green tears,
Bending and swaying
In the breeze.

img_1897_nocturnal_serenade_400Among the poppies
And dandelion spores
Floating over the
Summer of my
Youth.

Over the valleys
And mountains peaks
Laced with cool rivers
Rushing to the sea,
Splashing waves washing
Onto the beaches and
Shoreline.

Over the harbour
Shining like a sapphire
In a cerulean hue,
Crossed with steel bridges,
Glass spires and ridges;
The water shining
Stretched taut like
A sheet of glass,boats
Bobbing among the
Flecks of light dancing
On the waves.

O,to be free
Unfurled like a
Poppy or a dandelion
Spore unshackled
Unburdened floating
Over the world
Detached,
Transcendent.

I can see it all,
I can see it all;
The death throes
And death blows,
Love and laughter;
Generation upon
Generation, one
Washing over the
Other on our
Fragile blue
World.

As the swallow song
Swirled among willows
Weeping green tears,
Bending and swaying
In the breeze in the
Summer of my youth.

Sad songs,
Solemn songs,
Joyous songs.
Swallow songs.
