‘The Song of A Sparrow’ by Voice4me

The book ‘The Song of a Sparrow’ is a collection of poems dedicated to refugees and the life of refugees throughout their journey. The name of the book has originated from the poem inside the book ‘Sparrow’ which has been turned into a song, which will soon be released together with the book.

Listening to the stories of all the displaced humans among us we decided to publish the poetry of people who wish to join their voices with  the refugees .  

The poetry collection is presented in three languages – Greek, Turkish and English  – and contains the work of people from a variety of  ages and academic  backgrounds. The collection begins with a poem written especially for our project by Kyriakos Charalambides, Poet of Cyprus, a man who spent most of his life voicing one’s love for his homeland. The collection accompanies a song with the title ‘Sparrow’, lyrics written by Stavros Stavrou, and sketches in ink by artist Carol Syrimis.
