The Skylark

As high as a reverie
As small as a speck
To glimpse it at all
One must lie on the deck


As brief as an inkling
As fleet as a fawn
Everlasting, yet new
Aspiring since dawn


It sings 'All is well'
So far above ground
It sang 'All is well'
Even when it looked down


To the huge armoured lizard
Tearing thigh from the bone
While the previous owner
Crept crippled for home


It's as bright as a bell
And it rings in this sky
It's as light as a breath
And it sings us alive


As perfect as marble
As fertile as earth
As maudlin as gravestones
As healing as mirth


The bird has a vision
Sustaining it so
And contrasts with the frenzy
We witness below


The peculiar version of
'Staying alive'
Of the bull dinosaurs
On the M25


It sings 'All is well'
Even when it looks down
It sang 'All is well'
And never a frown
It sang 'All is well'
Wherever it flew
It sings 'All is well'
Because up there, it's true
