The Magpie’s Song

Azure winged magpie

 

The magpie has a broken wing

Upon her branch a-fluttering

It seems she’s lost the will to sing

It seems she’s lost the will to sing

○○○

The tiny heart beneath her breast

Grew weary for she gave her best

At telling stories from the nest

Yes, little magpies tell it best

○○○

She spoke of days when love rang true

Days when life beneath the blue

Gave all her words a golden hue

Those rainbow words like prisms flew

○○○

Blackbird sits so light and gay

He pries from his high perch all day

It seems he has so much to say

Why does he carry on that way

○○○

One day she’ll spread her wings to fly

And she will soar across the sky

To find a branch that’s up so high

Where not a thing could ever spy

On broken-hearted birds that cry

○○○

Perhaps one day she’ll love again

One day she’ll meet a special friend

That will remain until the end

○○○

Then a melody shall be unfurled

Before the captive waiting world

○○○

As a flute the magpie sings

When she lifts her lovely wings

To share the wild imaginings

Enamored magpies tend to bring
