O’ birds
You of colour
You fun creatures
Breeze crossing between your feathers
As you take rhythmic flights
Painted kites
Your friends enjoying the cactus flowers
Your cousins sitting on barbed wires
Your kids playing under raindrops
Your big guy flying fast
Chasing the late evening light
As you all sing moving songs
Full of long-standing words
That I’d listen to on repeat
O’ birds
What can I do to invite you in?
Coz am always left sad
As your hymns fade
When the moon darkens the night.
