Swallows

Swallows

They’re gathering on the wires now
Those wires by the sea
With pointed wings
And blood red throat
Preparing yet to flee
To warmer climes and southern skies
Of green and balmy days
When closer to the noon day sun
And fondled by her rays
Can I come too
Well can you fly
Or have your wings been clipped
And do you know the power
That our God has made us sip
I have a longing I replied
To be equator bound
To miss the coldest winter here
When hoar frost does abound
And numb my limbs do ache and shake
And darkness comes at four
I’d rather fly due south with you
And Africa explore
We shall return Hirundo cried
To grace your land in spring
Then when we come
You’ll know at once
For summer we shall bring
