River Bird / Poem by Muhammad Ismail 

Poem by Muhammad Ismail 


 River Bird

I am the ancient
of them all
I’m not the prettiest
and I know
I fly for a while
I sing for a while
and then come back
to where I belong
and I’m so proud
of being one letter
of Pharaonic words

The Old Singer
Muhammad Ismail
