I flit from branch to branch

among the trees

Humans walk below me

Never looking up to see

The creature that is me

Who’s song wakes them in the morning

They hear but never see

Soon it will be time

To  fly off to a new world

Closer to the sea

One day I will return

To sing the songs

Maybe someday someone will see

It has always been me
