Lucky bird in cage confined

Azure blue on white defined

Brought light to chase away the night

And in the darkness shone so bright

Where lonely man had often stumbled

As poorly chosen paths had humbled


Sitting and rubbing in fluffy delight

While fluffleumps and other passages

Arrived unheralded on a stage of pages

Yet you sang to friends in the mirror

I would have exchanged this lot

For such moments of simple seedy pleasure


Later, buddy…swing wild and free

Across silvery skies in soaring flight

Far away from hoary twilight
