two flocks of birds
flew across the field
one in the sky
the other
their shadow
trailing behind
they flew
until they settled in a field
the shadows caught up
they were one

keep me lord
in the shadow of your wing
protect me
from the noon time devil
and the lion

like a cloud
give me shelter
from the sun
let my shadow
not go forward
or backward
but stay with me

take me lord
from the land of desert
give me water
water that will slake my thirst
refresh my throat
be a cool stream
running down my face

renew with water
the face of my earth
and be thirsty no more

frank a vollmer
