The Whippoorwill


Imagine you're a whippoorwill
Perched atop a window sill
Perhaps atop a daffodil
Or maybe even on a hill
You spread your wings and then ascend
To be among your feathered friends
Stopping every now and then
Before ascending yet again
Your journey takes you to a tree
That you glide to effortlessly
And sit in so as to see
To what extent you are free
Free to fly anywhere
Free to fly from here to there
And have a friend with whom to share
Your adventures in the air
And then the smiles that you gave to me
Cemented in my memory
For all of eternity
Just like certain poetry
You can give to that friend
Before ascending yet again
To a place where you'll feel free
Where you can glide to effortlessly
