THE LITTLE BLUE BIRD AND THE RIBBON

By
Little girl, little girl
In the meadow

The meadow is
Open and big

The little girl sings softly
With the wind

With bright blue eyes
And dull blonde hair

Skin so soft
Like an angel

In her hand
A blue bird with a ribbon

Tied in a bow
And so beautiful

Eyes so big
And feathers so soft

She sings louder
And the wind does too

She holds the bird tight
To make it feel safe

Then she stops singing
As does the wind

A tear rolls down her cheek
Just one

She kisses the bird
And lets it free

She knows that
She might never see the bird again
She takes a deep breath
And walks home

Depressed and staring at the ground
She walks into her room

With the window open
And wind blowing in

Making her curtains sway
Back and forth

She looks up
And she sees…



On her bed
A blue bird with a ribbon

Tied in a bow
And so beautiful

Eyes so big
And feathers so soft
