The Robin – Barbara Taylor, RScP

THE ROBIN – by Kahlil Gibran


O Robin, sing! for the secret of eternity is in song.


I wish I were as you, free from prisons and chains.



I wish I were as you; a soul flying over the valleys,


Sipping the light as wine is sipped from ethereal cups.



I wish I were as you, innocent, contented and happy,


Ignoring the future and forgetting the past.


I wish I were as you in beauty, grace and elegance


With the wind spreading my wings for adornment by the dew.



I wish I were as you, a thought floating above the land


Pouring out my songs between the forest and the sky.



O Robin, sing! and disperse my anxiety.


I listen to the voice within your voice


that whispers in my inner ear.
