The Caged Bird

Updated: Jul 4, 2022

Love’s got me feelin’ like a caged bird:

The outside sounds are far away,

Scarcely heard, and the light of day

Taunts me from the bay window – O

No true warmth I know.

But despite all the desires diminished

And all the frivolous fancies finished,

Like e’ery bird doomed to the cut wing,

No matter what heartache’ll bring,

Still, STILL I’ll sing.

And when I’m no longer sunk,

deaf from my funk,

I’ll hearken to the rest

Of humanity’s song

and realize

They were singin’ w/ me all along.
