Sheltered under wing©

Caged bird, upon my arm

broken wings, restricted fight,

unintelligible mutterings,

hidden sorrow, flustered fluttering,

Trapped inside with one you love

But freedom the elusive goal.


Peck at that cage that keeps you safe

Flap feathers in your keepers face

What will you do when you are free?

Hunt for another to feed thee?

Will you be so demanding

After feeling what you’re losing?


It isn’t right to hide a life

Nor tis it to squander and take flight;

With nowhere else to call your home

What mighty light shines way to go?
