THE  ROBIN

By
Kahlil Gibran


&/\&/\&

O Robin, sing !   for the secret of eternity is in song.

I wish I were as you, free from prisons and chains.
 

I wish I were as you; a soul flying over the valleys,

Sipping the light as wine is sipped from ethereal cups.
 

I wish I were as you, innocent, contented and happy

Ignoring the future and forgetting the past.
 

I wish I were as you in beauty, grace and elegance

With the wind spreading my wings for adornment by the dew.
 

I wish I were as you, a thought floating above the land

Pouring out my songs between the forest and the sky.
 

O Robin, sing    and disperse my anxiety.

I listen to the voice within your voice that whispers in my inner ear.
