Feather wings spread wide Filled with gusts of air Soaring high outside In the blue skies fair He sings his sweet tune To an unseen mate Hoping soon she’ll swoon And love will be fate Chirping on alone Looking in the leaves Where shadows are thrown Long among green eaves As the day’s sun sets Singly he flies on In dark unfound yet Settling down til dawn Resting heavy eyes As the moon rises In indigo skies Mind still apprises The lonely bird sings on for what day brings Being too late to avoid lonely fate
