As I was going to the stairs
My steps were steep
Slow and still
I saw a little bird thing sly
It perched at my door space
A little boy asked, as in wonder I stare
Do you want it stay?
It’s beautiful, it’s charming and sweet
It glitters in my eyes so
Its colours a thing of joy to say
How stiff it is, my heart sings
To have it stay and go no long speed
One step, two steps, and away it flew by the third step
See it fly, whispered something
In the empty space above it swims
Where you can never see
Will I ever catch it smile?
I ponder and I sob
For the colours in my eyes will not seize
The purple it sparkles
I will never forget the silver
In black and white the body is stripped
The tail fan out with grey so sleek,
White, black and silver shining.
Will it go forever and I am sombre?
