What the night birds

sing when dreaming

I can translate to you as though

I were another  San Francesco.

They sing this:  Open your heart

like the blossom of a Day Lily

kissing the warm night

in the dark light.

Let the Pegasus of your most

daring fantasies fly high.

That’s what they sing

in this sweet night.

  1. That made me want to hear them finally again even more. Their songs are tales from all that is and has been. I never thought about it. Wonderful how your words make us drift into the magic of a wonderful aspect of nature.

  2. your poetry is unwaveringly up-lifting. I don’t know how you do this, make every natural phenomenon a thing of beauty, but you do it anyways and the accomplishment sets a thrill in my veins
