The Song Bird

Dewdrops glisten, darkness fades, the sky shows life again.
The Song bird wakes anxiously she knows where to begin.
The strength of flight an endless trait, her journey so serene.
The working of earth’s majesty is kept in all that’s clean.
Flapping wings, so fast they were, so fast no one could see.
The glory of earth’s nature was, moving tree to tree.
As soon as time was drawing near, to perch and sing of life.
A burning came from deep inside, cutting like a knife.
On this day distress crept in, her flight was masked with pain.
No one stopped to view once more; her flight was all in vane.
Her quest to cross the desolate, to reach a resting place,
The glory for the earth once stood, now falling from its grace.
She once was the defining way, how beauty is to be.
The fleeting past has come and gone, she cannot find her tree.
Despair engulfed, strange forces shook, holding back her flight.
Her wings slowed down, she pushed on still, using all her might.
Silence was so deafening; convinced she was alone.
No one there to hear her song, cheer became a groan.
On this day distress crept in, her flight was masked with pain.
No one stopped to view once more; her flight was all in vane.
She once could see across the world, seemed small, it had no length.
As the ground came closer still, she summons up her strength.
Seconds pass, she tried once more, to gain her need to fly.
Seconds more, she tried again; still no one heard her cry.
With the end drawing close, regret took over fear.
Memories of once what was, the ground still drawing near.
The impact of the fall was soft, new hope was in her sight.
With zest she tried to fly again, but could not regain her flight.
Lying on the bed of grass, defeat now had its hold.
With no flight, she lost her will, alone out in the cold.
On this day distress crept in, her flight was masked with pain.
No one stopped to view once more; her flight was all in vane.
