Twilight of Birds

The wilderness
of evening skies   †
a bowstring taut †  
ere arrows fly †  
painting the blood † †
of the warbirdsí cries † †
† †
Ancient hymn † †
our hearts imply †  
as trumpet taps †  
by and by †  
a flower crushes †  
in our soul † †
the elegy † †
of bloodstained skies † †
† †
Tell me when † †
the last tear dries †  
when the drums of war †  
no longer beat †  
I know that death itself † †
shall die †  
and flowers bloom † †
triumphantly † †
† †
Then discord bows †
to crowning peace
