CADENZA 2

There are birds there is birdsong

unmourning and unmournful in the white light

there are birds there is birdsong

having come through hunger and danger

there is

free song a free weaving of many songs

song against song and other songs in a blending of wavy pitches

there are birds there is birdsong

unmourning and unmournful having come through

like the light like

like love never for sale.
