Bird, oh bird!!!

Bird, oh bird, of wings and tail,
soaring high on a roaring gale.

Bird, oh bird, of wings and tail,
tiny to scale but up like a sail.

Bird, oh bird, of wings and tail,
so little a frame, but not so frail.

Bird, oh bird, of wings and tail,
flying high over a rolling vale.

Bird, oh bird, of wings and tail,
tearing with its beak, the misty veil.

Bird, oh bird, of wings and tail,
born so wild, but yet so tame.

Bird, oh bird, of wings and tail,
singing a song with a weaving tale.

Bird, oh bird, of wings and tail,
'tis a song divine and a fleeting tale.
