If I Were a Swallow by Markus43 If I Were a Swallow by Markus43
If I Were a Swallow

I could nimbly descend
Or soar above wetlands

I could live near the ocean
Or on top of a mountain

Fear of the hawk
Would be my only trouble

And not one of any value
They are too big and slow

If I were a swallow

wonderful composition - creates a feeling of flight and descent at the same time.

good verse in the comments too - i'm always struck by smaller birds chasing hawks across the sky.
