Plague Rose


Birds


Echo, echo
Hear the echo
Listen to the
Repeating words
Hello, hello
Goes the echo
Is someone there?
No-one human
Only birds
Birds that sing
And birds that talk
Birds that guide me
To the lock
The lock that guards
Its treasures great
The lock that only
Birds can break
But not unlock
For there is no key
This guarded door
Is full of mystery
And what's inside
Is still unknown
And why I'm here
I just don't know
And why these birds
Sing and talk
And speak of treasures
Behind the lock
And behind the door
For which the lock exists
A treasure
Only birds could ever miss
If it were gone
And they sang their song
With words
That have no meaning
A tune of vengeance
A tune of repeat
That wallows in itself
And sadness goes
Echo, echo
As a sound may go
Singing, singing
Unknown words
Sung not by humans
Only birds

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
