as i sat underneath the tree considering nothing
a tiny bird fell down to me, to eat, to fly, or sing
i took him home with me and fed him what he cried for, 'til his feathers shook
and he got older

singing, laughing, restless, older

one day the cage stood empty, like i had always known
my tiny bird had taken flight, leaving me alone
i sat under the tree and cried
until i felt a touch upon my shoulder

gentle, loving, different, older
