Song for the Birds in acrylic, AVR
Make me an artist to capture this ephemeral sight,
the colors of the rainbow fading in sunset;
from where you came, to this little stream I imagine,
this bastion of your kind from what it had been.
Make me a teacher that I may understand your language,
your cheerful songs from your cries; that I may gauge
the difference of knowledge from school and that of life,
joy and sorrow, love and care, leisure and strife.
Make me a man, the forgotten child many years ago,
long lost searching for the truth, from what I know,
that I may be worthy of my role in passing review,
to come down from Mount Olympus to your rescue. ~
Vianney, patron of all priests, Archdiocese of Capiz, Roxas City, August 4, 2011
