She Sings

Small in stature,
yet, her voice and spirit are extraordinary.

The warm-blooded vertebrate chirps
her harmonious song at daybreak.
Her song is a natural phenomenon
of her intense beauty.

Unbeknownst to them,
her bright, cheerful demeanor is a façade.
Her eminence and intrigue fill their home.

She sings…

Every morning
they gather and stare --
pointing and admiring her
beauty and trill.

They smile
as they walk past,
waving and promising
to return to listen to her lullaby.

She sings…

Day after day
she quietly watches them interact.
They talk, laugh, play, and dance
without her.

Her song is her rhapsody
that passes the time
and combats the solitude.

She sings…

Her song is her instrument
that travels far beyond
the bars of the cage.
