Songbird


Pretty, pretty songbird,
With shining feathers
of emerald and gold,
Tell me, please,
of what the future holds.
Pretty, pretty songbird
With glistening feathers
of ruby and bronze,
Tell me, please,
of what the past was.
Pretty, pretty songbird,
with iridescent feathers
of sapphire and silver,
Tell me, please,
of what the present is

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
