You Sing Your Song

Not pained by days past
Not burdened with lessons of history
No fear to soar the sky
No doubt in moment present
Little bird, little bird
You sing your song
And ALL is known.

Boy with Bird c. 1616, Peter Paul Rubens, Staatliche Museen, Berlin, Germany


  1. I wish to be this bird you described.

  2. Me too! I used to wish to be a bird often when I was a child...to not be totally bound to the earth...to soar with the eagles!

  3. Yes, the words bear my wish to soar free.
