‘Restored’. A tribute to the human spirit.

LISTEN TO THE POEM:

RESTORED

It’s no secret

They failed to silence you

Even as you struggled with mud-caked wings

For you were cherished by silver birch

And carried by the wind.

Honeybees sought the song in your throat

When dawn was a hoarse whisper

The sun bestowed its morning dew

And clover willed your healing.

Now earthworms gather to knit a coat

And spiders weave new feathers       

Forged by fire

Fed in clay

All conspire to give you strength

To soar as celestial dust.
