I wish

for Sally Hutt’s Wild Challenge

my friend the blackbird

O to be a bird
to soar and see it all:
sea and land
mountain, plain and valley
forest, farm and moorland
to judge the world of man
and find it wanting

  2. Oh yes…this makes my heart break. I so wish to see through eyes of bird and I feel bad that they should see us failing. ♥
