White Bird

“..Love is a little white bird

and the flight of it so fast

you can’t see it

and you know it’s there

only by the faint whirr of its wings

and the hush song coming so low to your ears

you fear it might be silence

and you listen keen and you listen long

and you know it’s more than silence

for you get the hush song so lovely it hurts your heart..”

– Carl Sandburg

(Excerpt from poem Little Word, Little White Bird from his book Honey and Salt)
