The bird (poem)

The bird flew off my apartment roof

into a nearby leafy tree


Singing merrily through a furry chest

that was quivering with glee


I heard her notes from the kitchen

and walked outside to better hear her song:


So lively, so carefree,

so  joyful, so strong


I'd like to be a bird

and fly out into the sky


Never asking questions

never asking why


I'd like to climb the blueness

of an April afternoon


Or glide across a summer's night

into a crescent moon
