Be Like A Bird

“Let us be like a bird for a moment perched
On a frail branch when he sings;
Though he feels it bend, yet he sings his song,
Knowing that he has wings.”

-Victor Hugo

The group, Libana,  sings a round based on Victor Hugo’s words. You can hear it  in at CD Baby. This makes a good repetitive chant to sing. I have a group meeting at my home . Sometimes we sing this.

“A bird sits on the dry twig of a tree and eats a piece of fruit it has found somewhere. It knows that the twig may break at any moment; so it is very alert as it sits on the twig. You should understand that this world is like that. Everything may be lost at any moment. You should remember that, children. Be sure to hold on to the truth that only God is everlasting. Then there will be no reason for sorrow
