A Message from the Winged Sisters

A solitary songbird chirps in the paned glass

As if to participate in our celebration

To call us to attention

To ground us in focus and clarity

The chirping mechanizes

And the angels speak through the pipes

“The birds were created for a singular task

To emanate the sound of joy

“Through the grace of music

We mimic the birds

We mimic so that you may remember

So you know why you are here

“You never stop to listen to them

But they are always teaching

Their lesson is simple and absolute:

There is joy in love

Keep your heart light,

Like our soft feathers

And remember that you came to teach

That only love is real.”
