lyrics

Abandoned unborn by my begetters
I was still dead a few spring days, days ago
No beat in the breast, no breath in me
A kinswoman she covered me in the clothes
The clothes that she wore

No kind but kind indeed
Coddled and swaddled
As close as I had been
A baby of her own

Until as had been shaped, so shielded
Though no kin the unguessed guest grew
Great with life, greater with life
She fended for me, fostered me
She fed me up til I was of a size
To set my own bounds

Oh so much further afield
She had fewer sons
And daughters
Because she did so

The bird that she knew and the bird now grown
Is a cuckoo you see now taking his turn
For the cuckoo in me will push us apart

If we meet again then we should meet again
The girl we both knew laughing so
As if to say in a funny way
How you get there is not what makes you stay.
