But She Still Sings

© 2013 by Michael Jerling

From the album Halfway Home



She's not a pretty bird
But she still sings
Sometimes she sings alone
Weightless and windblown
Out on a limb
And oh so far from home
And oh so far from home

Did you hear it?
Did you hear it?

And once the elm trees
Ruled over my street
Beneath a leafy crown
But when they withered
And fell to their knees
The naked sun shone down

Did you see them?
Did you see them?

I'm not a pretty bird
But I still sing
Sometimes I sing alone
Wasted and windblown
Out on a limb
And oh so far from home
And oh so far from home
And oh so far from home
