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.

the best part of flying, in my experience (in dreams) is floating. that's why i'd like so much to fly, for those moments
