Every Bird was Made to Fly

Posted on September 24, 2011

Every bird was made to fly
Forsake the dust and sail the sky
We love the egg in which we lie
Until adventure steals our hearts away

Now you laugh, and my soul sings
Yet anxious of what the future brings
To your every breath my memory clings
Like artifacts saved for a lonelier day

For these four walls I shield you by
The order of nature cannot defy
Rapunzel in her tower high
Such illusory safety did dismay

So each year passing this tiding brings:
Our shared moments are but beginnings
The wind to stretch your fledgling wings
Forever in this nest you cannot stay

For every bird was made to fly
And so must you, so must I
Yes, you will learn to say goodbye
Just not today, love, not today.

  1.   I thouroughly enjoyed this offering.
      It shows careful composition. The rhyme scheme you chose is very effective, somewhat reminicsent of Robert Frost.
      While I enjoyed your other offerings of free verse, this poem with it’s careful attention to the details of rhyme and meter, has to rank among your finest.
    Well done.
