“You say you’ve seen seven wonders
and your bird is green
You can’t see me
You can’t see me” – Lennon/McCartney/The Beatles from the song “And your bird can sing.”
“Do you know why I still sing?”
The caged bird asked the free bird.
“No. Do you know why I sing?”
The free bird asked the caged bird
“I sing because I am free
I sing because it comes to me
She told the caged bird, flapping her wings
Just outside her cage, fluttering around freely.
“I sing remembering freedom”
The caged bird said in song, sad, and sweet
“I sing imagining freedom
Though I am caged, and alone, I am free
Now you know why, though my wings are clipped
I still sing, and sing free.”
I still sing as song can’t be caged
I still sing as song is free
I sing through to song, to create the free
Now I too know why the caged bird still sings.
You can cage me too, but I shall still sing.
