If I were a Bird Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION

If I were a big black bird
I’d swim in the airy ocean
Of the cloud, and rise and fall
Like a tide ‘neath the starry sky

I’d my eyes tightly closed
Fearless of the storms and tempest
Of scudding cloudy ice-berg
Sail like peace

My fingers like sun’s spray
As I strum the bands of heights
To all spheres, at my own will
As would wind winds and breezes

I’d rove and dive in frolic
All day long, till night comes
As if it were to be forever
In making freedom all mine

Then I’d in aerobatics swerve
O’er the mountains to the valleys
Scooping a thing or another aloft
And drifting like rafter above

With wind thus ‘neath my wings
Unbounded, shall my flight be
In springing forth from the sky-board
Till I rest in an Eternal nest.
