Uriah Hamilton

Yellow Birds - Poem by Uriah Hamilton

I’ve been broken
Like a lonely dream
Looking for a mind to enter,
But I follow the footsteps of love
Through the crowded halls of hate.
I’m a patient man,
From every act of unkindness,
One day, I will escape—
Meet me at dawn,
We’ll gaze at yellow birds,
Our affection will be new
Like the first day of creation.

    This poem shines with iits own light. It reminds me of the work of the great Yiddish poet, Menke Katz. It has the same beautiful, everlasting quality.

    Kind regards,
