The Birds of God
By Frances Shaw
AT dawn
Your thoughts, like birds of God,
Sang to you at your play.
The horrid beasts of war        5
Have driven God’s birds away.
O child,
You are too young for fears,
And oh, too young for sorrow.
But clasp your little hands        10
And pray
That all God’s birds of yesterday
May sing again tomorrow.
