Africa folklore Nature Pastoral Poetry

Happy birds

Take flight happy birds
See where the world ends
Take no note of your stress
Just live for another fine day


Flying to summer 

There’s a symphony of joy! 

Roaring up the bright skies, 

Emissaries of the aging day

Graceful flights to Africa! 


Floating above the countryside 

Leaving the fresh, green fields

Above the endless forests

Keeping hope ahead


Each journey is an unknown promise, 

Somewhere between joy and heartache. 

But they must fly, the fair geese

Up the clouds, moving on with life
