Treasure Island

Matthias Pantaleon

Birds In The Sky


The sky is open to birds
No matter their colour or specie
It's just enough for every breed
Every wing to soar
Every wind to beat
Every height to attain
This way, birds chirp at will
Not minding greedy men; or needy maids
Just the space and their pace

I marvel as birds stay all day in the sky
They must love it there; why wouldn't they
When they are not threaten by hurricane
Nor dislodge by earthquake
But at ease soaring as far as they please

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
