if I were a bird (23 Sep 2006)

15 Jun

I wish I were a bird
dangling upside down
kowhai nectar

drenching my crown
I’d sing praise for my life
small as I am

the girl in the window
  watching
my exclamations of proud

joy
  and wishing to be lost
in my creative juice

this tui, me, drunk on so much choice
Worship sweet spring
and light of mind

this glorious playground
which would be mine
  if I were a bird
