lyrics

Wings and Things


Here and there
With a sideways stare
See fly by flutters
And wonder why

Making do,
Doing in pairs
Feather light carriage
Portals of a marriage

Which way wishes,
Away with the fishes
These things
With wing-tipped
Colours and grace
Ply my path with choices

My nest is my castle,
But when the time comes,
I too must take flight

Wings and things to discover
Watch the ebb and flow
Taste the air,
Flower to flower
Tree to tree
Place to place

Wings that sing.
