Fare Thee Well O Little Bird

Fare Well, Fare Well, O little bird
Flap your wings with merry
Sing the beautiful melody of your gracious life
As you flee away
Remember the nest and the nestlings
On the canopy
Of the sturdy tree you perched on
Your home
O little bird, O graceful bird
Fly to distant azure skies
Pierce the airy air of newness
Dear little bird
Of colourful yellow wings
And smooth even feather
When you are done
Soaring the endless skies
Come back home
On the outstretched arms of the canopy
And conspiratorial welcome of wind’s hum
O dear little bird
Come back home—to roost

C) Lorot Salem 2010
