Poetry Friday: 'Scaped by Stephen Crane

October 15th, 2010 (07:34 am)

Current Mood: thirsty
Current Song: More Than Fine by Switchfoor

Once I knew a fine song,
-It is true, believe me,-
It was all of birds,
And I held them in a basket;
When I opened the wicket,
Heavens! they all flew away.
I cried, "Come back, Little Thoughts!"
But they only laughed.
They flew on
Until they were as sand
Thrown between me and the sky.

- 'Scaped by Stephen Crane
