The Linnet's Wings The Sorrow - Page 80

The Linnet´s Wings A Song without Words by John William Godward, Date: 1919 On “Everyone Sang”: Editorial by Oonah V Joslin Everyone Sang by Siegfried Sassoon Everyone suddenly burst out singing; And I was filled with such delight As prisoned 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 Everyone Was a bird; and the song was wordless; the singing will never be done. 80
