Ballad of the Fish and the Bird

The time of year the sun came out,
and summer had arrived.
A fish, he swam among its home.
and a bird tried to hide.

The bird had watched over the fish,
with hearts filled in its eyes.
She could not help but stare, stare, stare,
not gazing, she would die.

The fish's skin, so soft and smooth.
Its surface felt like glass.
He moved so swift but gracefully.
His fins moving so fast.

The bird checked herself constantly,
impression was her goal.
She peeked into the lake and blushed.
The bird had seen her so.

'Hello,' he said under his breath,
trying to be polite.
'I noticed you were watching me.
You are such a delight.

I hope to see you once again,
my dearest little bird.
But, we are from different worlds.
I know it seems absurd.'

'Dear fish I know now in my heart,
that life is filled with love.
We must have faith in our world,
and live with patience of

The acceptance of our friendship,
from others around us.
It will take days or many years,
but it is worth the wait.

I love you so with all my heart,
and hope you do the same.
Until next time we meet again,
I will live with much pain.'

The time of year the sun came out,
and summer had arrived.
A fish, he swam among its home.
and a bird tried to hide.

The bird had watched over the fish,
with hearts filled in its eyes.
She could not help but stare, stare, stare,
not gazing, she would die.

The bird's father had returned home,
from a long day at work.
He noticed his daughter gawking,
and questioned with a smirk.

'Why are you staring at the fish?
Oh wait don't answer that.
I have witnessed that look before.
Sit here still like a cat.'

The father flew away from home,
and journeyed out to sea.
He was going to get the fish,
and traveled with much glee.

The father brought the fish back home,
His daughter loudly shrieked.
For the father swallowed the fish,
and made his daughter weep.

'Oh father, I cannot believe,
you ate my one true love.
Even though he is food to you,
To me, we were both doves.

He and I were precious angels,
that floated in the sky.
Now I can't gaze at him,
and this will make me die.
