Chorus of the Nondescript

What the Crow Said:

I am every dark thought
you ever learned to see
was the shining Jewel
of possibility –
I live longer than you think.

What the Wren Said:

I am the small one
no one can see
until I sing
throwing love into the wind –
My song lights the lilies.

What the Starling Said:

I am the spotted one
voice like a rusted chain
falling in crowds
to clean your garden–
I battle destruction.

What the Sparrow Said:

I am the invisible one
working in great numbers
in gardens and parking lots
in every bright corner–
I save you from yourselves.

We are legion.
We live with you unseen –
On your periphery.
Without us, you die,
Buried in insect life
And your own sadness.
