A Little Bird Called Hope - Poem by David Harris

On a sky west and crooked
flew a little bird called hope.
It flew with a message to tell everyone
that where there is hope,
love and charity are very soon to follow.
That where there is peace,
the winds of war will soon disperse.

    A lyrical piece about flight and light and wings. When the dove and the bluebird join hands, the words of your poem will come true. A miracle, perhaps? love, Allie xxxx (Report)Reply
