These Bones Are Light to Travel In


These bones are light to travel in,
Where men are wont to roam;
Far away from the birthing lands-
Though none remembers birth.

These bones the same, inside bird wings,
Though lighter those, and airy;
To lift one high, above tree lines-
Though few would climb, so daring.

These bones the home, for long as life
Sees fit to stay inside;
Closer than a mother was-
Or a blushing bride.

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
