Ye Birds On My Window Sill

Ye Birds On My Window Sill

I ask of ye birds
That visit me daily
Ye who I have fed every meal
O’er days, months and years
I plead with thee

Do me a favour, ye
And fly to yonder shore
Where my child hath gone
To make her name
Honour thy debt and carry my love

On your feathered wing
Perch upon her window sill-
She’ll know.
Go! Ye birds that chirp gaily
O’er my ledge; fly, hurry

To my child,
who waits forlorn
for a reminder
of home.

After being in banking for 20 years, I had to leave and move countries due to personal reasons. That is when I took up writing again. I had always written but the writing remained in my diaries. In 2016, I shared my writing with the world through my blog - PENNINGS…ONE WOMAN'S JOURNEY. My debut book of poetry 'Roads - A Journey with Verses' only just got published on July 5th 2019. I'm enjoying this new chapter in my life with writing forming the crux. I hope to write a novel some day and more poetry.
