Sing, sister, sing

the songbird,
sultry and strong,
playful and immensely powerful,

behind the shutters of her eyes
lies infinite melody and charm,
and when she sings,
the birds perch on the branches of trees and listen in silence
the dogs stop barking
and wolves stop howling at the moon

she reaches to the stars with song
conquers our hearts with emotion
and rhythm and hope

the songbird is a lullaby personified
