A Little Blue Bird

A little blue bird

Trapped in its golden cage
Looking through the window

Envying every fluttering butterfly
Every swirling leaf
Envying the wind that carries dew on its wings

The bird too has wings
Beautiful feather wings

Looking through the window
The bird would cry
How can he be a bird
But still he cannot fly?

-A Poem by Mariam A.
