My Only Song

Man of Sorrow
Man of Pain
You took it all
Without any gain.
You loved us all

'So many lost;
So many die.'

Man of Sorrow
Man of Pain
Leave it now-
And cry again
Man of sorrow
Man of pain

Yet you'd do it again
For one lost sheep

A minute before it rains,
A humming bird at a
Red tinged feeder.
Black cat shaking
Excess water off.
Graceful steps flowing,
Untrained dancer of fur.

[Hata Bildir]
