Wings In Captivity

Wings In Captivity short poem

Uploaded by Lorna Malla

My Bird died I cried and cried
I should have let him go
Clipped wings a cruel thing
So a bird song I could hear

He would have flown up to the sky
He could have sowed high
A thing of the sky two wings to fly
Was prisoned to fly no more
So a bird song I could hear

At break of dawn
I look up to the sky
To watch the birds fly
And wondered why oh why oh why
My bird sings no more

Now every star I see
I think one is he
At last up in the sky
And with a wink of the twinkling star
My bird song comes alive!!!
