Tracks of a Wandering Mind

Poetry, stories and random thoughts from a wandering mind.

Bird on the Wing

(for “Endora”)

Bird on the wing fly free,
Follow your heart’s desire.
Carry your dreams on a golden wing
That takes you ever higher.

Do not fear earth so far below,
It’s gray roots cannot bind you.
Fly free little bird and flee the cold
And leave winter’s breath behind you.

Bound to this world for but a short time,
For a moment so brief were you known,
Your gilded plumage did brightly shine,
And gladdened the hearts here below.

The gifts you have given mark the path
Of your journey through our lives.
Bird on the wing, know happiness
As toward the Heavens you fly.
