Tired, Tired is my Soul


P1040133-001 crop R 300

Tired, Tired is my soul
No dream or goal
Although the sky is bright
The little cloud pure white
The sun is warm
This autumn morn

Wake up, wake up
The magpie sings
Come on, I’ll cheer you up
Take a ride on my wings

Tired, tired is my soul
To the magpie I reply
I’d rather follow the mole
Into his darkest hole


I found this poem on a tiny notepad piece of paper, which tells me I must have written it at the kitchen table, perhaps after breakfast when I usually feel tired and lethargic. I must have been depressed too.

    When I feel weary
    And am blue
    I look to the mountains
    And bathe in the sunshine
    When the rain
    Falls on my heart
    I return to the forest
    That my childhood knew
    For those things ease my pain
    Even if they are but dream
