The Cardinal

The cardinal is red                                                                                   

Happy as can be

With its wings spread                                                                          

Flying free                                                                                                            

 

Through the sky it’s soaring

A pleasant sight to see

The cardinal isn’t boring

It’s calling to me

 

To come join the fun

Yet what I lack

Are wings to climb to the sun

And to glide back

 

It looks down at me

And sings as it flies

I climb higher in the tree

The cardinal is so wise

 

It’s peaceful here

In the blowing breeze

The cardinal is near

And its wings brush my knees

 

How amazing I would feel

If only I could fly

It would be surreal

Way up in the sky

 

But other birds are grounded

Remaining on earth or at sea

They cannot be astounded

By the sensation you get above the trees

 

The cardinal is a lucky bird

Oh, pay attention closely

Its beautiful song can be heard

It soars in the sky mostly

 

But will sometimes land

Close by you

In your hand

Yes, it’s true

 

The cardinal is red                                                                                   

Happy as can be

With its wings spread                                                                         

Flying free
