Spring’s Broken Wings

homeless, broken-winged birds
forgotten ones of spring
sing sweetest, endless song

the one I speak of
     (I wonder if you know her—
            she has no nest
            no place to rest
            her head)

a beautiful melody
rings through darkness
marks the sky
pierces the night
alone, she sings

      (do you know her)

she sings for you
her eyes look upon you
with love

spring’s broken wings
