80.Bird, infuse life

The sky is overcast,

Darkness prevails in the day,

No sign of life anywhere,

Not a window is open.

 

No laughter of the child,

No whining of the sick,

No wailing of the bereaved,

No sound of breathing -

Not a thing stirs,

Unbridled silence rules.

 

Bird, come flying from somewhere,

Sing loudly in your sweet voice,

Drive this melancholy away,

This darkness, this silence,

Infuse new life in things dead,

Don’t hold anything back today.
