Egret Blues
By Margaret Simon
Inspiration piece

It’s a tryin’ time to be a symbol of peace
Tryin’ during this time to be peace
full of a sad song in the air
There’s a sad song swirling in the air
tropical winds just don’t care.

That hurricane down south in the gulf
A storm makes peaceful turn to rough
I’m walkin’ this line waitin’ for a sign
A sign of weather’s high-pitched whine
A whine can’t keep from cryin.

Egret blues echo in Lord’s sunrise
Lord’s sunrise blurs my sideways eyes
I’m catchin’ the tailwind, ready to fly
Ready to fly through the bright new sky
A horizon of Peace by and by.
