No Bird

Standard

“I am no bird and no net ensnares me.”

I’ll fly to you my dear
And eat from your open hand

Perched there, I preen and croon
A song for you alone

Oh how you love the surrender of wild things
Shaping them to your will

I must warn you my love
Do not mistake my acquiescence

I’ll never sit tame in a cage for you
Not always respond to your entreat

For the world is my domain
And The sky my home.
