MEMORIAL SONG

Little emerald bird
Wants to fly away
If I cup my hand
Could I make him stay

Little emerald soul
Little emerald eye
Little emerald soul
Must you say good-bye

All the things
That we pursue
All that we dream
Are composed
As nature knew
In a feather green

Little emerald bird
As you light afar
It is true I heard
God is where you are
Little emerald soul
Little emerald eye
Little emerald bird
We must say good-bye

Patti Smith
