Come Walk With Me

Come walk with me, 

I need to hear the red-winged blackbirds sing, 

They’re swinging on the rushes by the Bay. 


Something has chased my mockingbird away, 

He sang up the Sun and comforted the night, 

I miss his song. 


The earth is bare, 

Leaves are falling, and Time is stretched to share, 

Where is his song? 


Come walk with me, 

Help me to find the red-winged blackbirds’ songs, 

Their secret reassures me all is well.
