Bluebirds Poem by Yoni Assis


Rating: 3.5

There they go
Look at the show
Climbing into the heavens
All lucky sevens

Here one moment
Gone the next
Trying to catch them
Leaves you vexed

Can’t tame them
Can’t shame them
Can’t train them
Can’t blame them

Sometimes it’s time
No reason nor rhyme
Creatures must fly
Escape to the sky

Afford release
Maintain the peace
Open the cage
Without the rage

Fly they will
And better still
Thrive on their own
No bitching or moan

Bluebirds are fleeting
Around for a greeting
One might stay
Of this we can pray

Very interesting, I didn't know that. I'm a history buff-I wrote a piece called Impact about Ancient Rome-so it's always cool to pick up information like that. In any event, thanks for chiming in...much appreciated.

There are bluebirds over the white cliffs of Dover a song long ago meaning happiness and we'll meet again after Hitlers last line 'Of this we can pray' nice coincidence regards
