Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie



To Barry [Bray?]

The sparrow sings “dawn chorus”

for someone else to hear.

The “thinker” sits alone,

Growing old.

Time has just begun



[Above words lifted in main from David Bowie’s unreleased Lover To The Dawn /1969 song Cygnet Committee. “Time has just begun” seems to be inscriber’s own addition. WG]
