The Company of Birds - Sasha Moorsom

Ah the company of the birds
I loved and cherished on earth
Now, freed of flesh we fly
Together, a flock of beating wings,
I am as light, as feathery,
As gone from gravity we woar
In endless circles.

Sahsa Moorsom (1931-1993) loved birds. According to her they represented the soaring spirit in her and in others. She sculpted her own birdbath so that she could watch them and make sure they had enough to eat in the winter.

  1. I have loved this poem for years and has been in my book of favorites. Just listen and you can see the birds flying in your mind.
