Poetry Friday: The Singer by Anna Wickham

Current Mood: hungry
Current Song: Supernatural score music

If I had peace to sit and sing,
Then I could make a lovely thing;
But I am stung with goads and whips,
So I build songs like iron ships.

Let it be something for my song,
If it is sometimes swift and strong.

- The Singer by Anna Wickham

I agree with Robyn -- perfect choice to honor Mandela.

Swift and strong is often what is needed!
