With Words Like Birds


Out into the world we're hurled

Shouting, stretching, fists unfurled.


Sometimes our words sprout like weeds

Growing, choking greener seeds

We peck and pick, sort and feed.

When you're done, say no more

Close the window, shut the door.


But remember

How to scale the wall 

Jump the hoop, run the hall

Say I thank you, say you're kind

Say I love you, speak your mind

Find the key, solve the maze

Cross the bridge, raise the gate

Fly your words, it's not too late.
