Birdie, Birdie

by Dawn Pisturino

Birdie, birdie in the tree,
Are you lonely just like me?
Rise into the morning sky
And fly, birdie, fly!

Tired of the verdant bough,
Hanging low with apples now?
Look, the yellow sun is high.
Fly, birdie, fly!

I wish I could fly like you,
Sing a song or maybe two,
Flutter softly my good-bye,
And fly, birdie, fly!

When the moon began to rise,
I would leave the darkened skies,
Fold my wings where I would lie,
And die, birdie, die.

Up to heaven I would go,
White and pure as new-made snow,
Safe beneath the father's eye:
Fly, birdie, fly!

All the world would miss my song,
Sweet and pure and not too long,
Partly triumph, partly sigh;
Fly, birdie, fly!
