Flying the sky

Oh, to be a bird

Winging it up high,

Swimming in lilac clouds,

Diving in the silken net of the sky,

Freedom and flight.

Oh, to be a bird

Singing the skies,

Living in sunshine and hope,

Drinking the wild air

And rejoicing in every strand and filament

of light.

For more joyful heavens, please visit: Skywatch!
