"Everyone Sang"

Random Poetry List LXVI

Everyone suddenly burst out singing;
And I was filled with such delight
As prison'd birds must find in freedom
Winging wildly across the white
Orchards and dark-green fields;
    on; on; and out of sight.

Everyone's voice was suddenly lifted,
And beauty came like the setting sun.
My heart was shaken with tears; and horror
Drifted away... O but every one
Was a bird; and the song was wordless;
    the singing will never be done.

Siegfried Sassoon (English, 1886-1967)
