DOT... LETTER... WORD...
The bird is afraid to lay an egg,
It is afraid it will not lay
A roc or a phoenix. It wants a chick
That will fly above the Milky Way,
It does not want a chick that will fly
North instead of south, ignore
Magnetic fields of force, fly
Away from peace and into war.
One day, when this bird is no longer
Afraid, it will bear chicks that fly
Through lightning itself, that shine
From lucent clouds to the dull magpie.
