Birds in Barnstable by Alicia Mathewson ©2012 5:55 am, the sun is peaking through the clouds and the birds sound like a symphony coffee strong and hot grass still wet with dew I can’t imagine a day more perfect or true Waking up on a Sunday with the birds in Barnstable The back yard I knew as just a girl Sitting on the sun porch with the birds in Barnstable Opening my heart to the world Let every child know this love Let every man feel this free Let every girl rise above Let every boy be soft and happy Let every cell regenerate Like a perfect rising star Let every heart recreate The truth of who we are 5:55 pm the sun is falling down the sky and the birds are falling off to sleep beer cold and crisp skin still hot with sun I can imagine a day more perfect or free Living life on a Sunday with the birds in Barnstable The ocean I knew as just a girl Swimming in the harbor with the birds in Barnstable Opening my heart to the world Let every child know this love Let every man feel this free Let every girl rise above Let every boy be soft and happy Let every cell regenerate Like a perfect rising star Let every heart recreate The truth of who we are And as the salt washes me clean I remember your face Thank you mom for how you lived your life and how you let go with grace Thank you mom for how you lived your life and how you let go with grace 5:55 am the sun is peaking through the trees and the birds sound like a symphony mother clear and strong conducting now with her light I can hear her voice perfectly Letting go on a Sunday with the birds in Barnstable The heart I knew as just a girl Dancing in the life force with the birds in Barnstable Opening my heart to the world Let every child know this love Let every man feel this free Let every girl rise above Let every boy be soft and happy Let every cell regenerate Like a perfect rising star Let every heart recreate The truth of who we are
