Bird Against The Sky


He stood against the sky
Looming on the rocks above me
He looked almost like a statue
Standing so still and majestically

It was early morning sunrise
A start of an amazing day
The feelings I felt inside
Are difficult to say

For on this early morning
I had my fishing rod in hand
I felt so close to nature
The lake... the sky... the land

It seemed as though time
Had stopped right in its tracks
And I had to capture the moment
‘Cause there was no turning back

Nor did I want seek yesterday
And I will tell you why
I want to remember this morning
And the bird against the sky!

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
