Songbird


You fear my wings
you think
I will fly away.
You must decide:
Cage me
I'll still love you
sing for you
the same sweet song
every night.
But if you trust me
uncage me
to soar swoop glide turn
so many new delights
so many different songs
so many nights

Alan Smith Oct 2003

I love your poetry! I love your humor! We need moremoremore! Outta that hospital, you lazy jackal! Okay, you can lay in bed but please write more for us poor poetry-hungered fools! :o) I used to love my ex-dead-husbands' (YAY!) poetry but there won't be any more of that... Up and at'em!
