Psaltery Song

Today, I played the psaltery on my deck, improvising songs.

My birds came. The sparrows came. And my husband watched them.

And when I stopped, the birds were disappointed.

My birds. I love them.

They want an encore.

Sparrows.



The Book of Psalms Book I Psalm 1 56:13
For thou hast delivered my soul from death [Hast thou] not [delivered] my feet from falling, That I may walk before God In the light of the living? Psalm 57 For the Chief Musician [set to] Al-tash-heth. [A Psalm] of David. Michtam when he fled from Saul, in the cave.
