Tag Archives: out of the abyss


From his window he can see

Beautiful bright sunlight…

From the abyss he was in

He welcomes  this cheerful sight!

Freed from wallowing in despair

Opens up a door…

To lively and fresh air

Quickening hearts once more.

Goes back to sleep–

It’s early yet…

Dreaming deep

Of songbirds’ he won’t forget.
