AND NO BIRDS SING

Ahhh little one
the only wrong you ever done

dying before
you were born

never to know

the blue of a sky
the whisper of a sea
the laugher of one who loves you

I tell you of these things
create a world for you in words

since it is all the world
that I can give you.

Forgive my tears
this is not the way to greet you.
