Song of the Firebird

by Vanessa Vie

Song of the Firebird
     to M.H.

I fell in Love with a bird
I am in Love with a Firebird
“Put your colours against the sky
Discover who you are”

Bird bird oh Free bird
Our Love poem is not written yet
Unwritten unbidden in True Love’s realm

So allons! mon ami   — the time has come
Winter is here and we won’t be alone.
