the red bird haunting song

 no one recalls the red bird's haunting song

in dead of winter but it marks the spring

the creature's small and yet its voice is strong

 

what we discover when we fall among

the hordes who struggle to avoid the sting

(no one recalls the red bird's haunting song

 

but has a sense that they are drawn along

into the silence) is the sharp high ring

the creature's small and yet its voice is strong

 

enough to to let  us know that we belong

in this strange place where all our hopes may cling

no one recalls the red bird's haunting song

 

and yet when choruses turn to a throng

we want so urgently our hearts to fling

the creature's small  and yet its voice is strong

 

enough for us to know it is not wrong

to feel its force and want ourselves to sing

no one recalls the red bird's haunting song

the creature's small and yet its voice is strong
