You Could Have Heard


Contours are
Fading away in my night
But I see seagulls
Flying around in the silent sunset sky
I wanna sail a ship across the wind
I'm gonna sail a ship across the wind
Something that takes me beyond this fence
But I don't want the air to take me
I want something to sail against
And involves resistance

Otherwise I'd be a bird
That can be caught and caged by someone else
You could have heard

Blackness is
Fading away neath the morning light
But I see doves
Rising high above starting up their flight
I wanna get you a diamond ring
You are gonna have a diamond ring
Something that makes you shine among the rest
But I don't want you to be like me
Any woman pattern that you choose
Be sure that's what you are to be

Otherwise I'd be a girl
Strutting with a piece of diamond pearl
Round my neck
You could have heard

Acting like every living woman
That's what you ever should
Be mine always and forever
Love me just like you ever would
And you'll have diamonds or whatever
One by one making up a tower built as well as ever could

Otherwise are you going to be bare
Before a dirty hairy ugly bear
Whose taste ain't fine
Whose game ain't fair
you could have heard

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
