Poem From The 2nd Floor Balcony - Poem by Max Reif

Ah, we live
too close to the ground!

If we listened
really listened to the birds
they would tell us everything

and if we listened to the morning
breezes in the branches
we would know there is Ocean
invisible Ocean all around

and if we gazed long enough
perhaps the sky would tell us
that we are all inside a robin's egg
waiting to be born
