Come with us

Posted in poems with tags , , on April 3, 2013 by Phillip Barker



Egyptian birdsong
Priests of heaven come again
To tickle my ears
Slow deep river whispering
Somewhere near, just out of sight

How sad to be there
Caught in that dark little book
Not here with the dawn
Migrating birds call gently
Come with us, come with us
