Choreographer of Birds    music by Glenn Hardy    poem by Margaret Hardy                                          

The veined wings of birds

Freely through the morning

Fall in rites of

Supplication to the dawn,

But I am bound by fear

And torn by fabricated

Fetters of the mind:

To fly forth once, cut free

Like the wave that has broken

Blessing the gritty shore.

In the kaleidoscope of clouds

Flocks form the shifting

Features of your face:

Oh, choreographer of birds.

(1995 Hardy Perennials Music)
