Magpie - Poem by Daniel Murphy

Close companions they seem to be
I could be jealous
Though it’s not for me.

Close together they stay so tight
I could be envious
But it wouldn’t be right.

From high above they stare right down
I could get dizzy
Though I have the ground.

From any distance they seem in love
I could be ignorant
But I’ve understood.

So much to learn in love it’s true
They could be our teachers
Though they fly high in the blue.

So open your eyes into the sky
You could play blind
But you’d be telling a lie.
