Me less divine than Robin


Me less divine than Robin
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Oh Robin tell me
If I am missing
A bit of heaven
In you this morning
It’s four o'clock
Time for carolling
To awaken Gods in heaven
-day to dawn
-sun to shine
-breeze to blow upon my garden
-trees to sway
-flowers to bloom
To waft fragrance to heaven
Sing Robin sing
Let not thy silence
Stop all from waking
Day may dawn
Trees may sway
Flowers may bloom
Of what use of all this
If you don’t sing
I know you love heaven
You love to sing
But what ails you
To forget the king in heaven
Oh Robin I am just human
I have no wings
Nor do I sing
How can I be close to heaven?
Oh Lord for a moment
Make me thy Robin
So that I could sing
Sing Robin sing
For Heaven is a lovely thing
You always carry in your wings……

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
