Mountain Bluebird c2016 Linda Boyle
Rise up, mountain bluebird from the meadow grass so green.
Let the sunlight dance on your blue wings like a dream.
The magical blue of your wings
Makes me believe in impossible things
Makes me happy and want to sing
of the joy I feel to know that you are real!
Did you circle ‘round the globe?
Or do you hide from the world’s woes?
Tell me where you go at night.
Do you hitch a ride on a moonbeam flight?
Mountain bluebird, where were you born?
Was it from an egg in a nest up on high?
Or in a young child’s dream, of your return from the ocean deep?
Tell me the story of the August Red Moon -
You flew across at midnight, chirping a tune.
Are there other feathered travelers to this celestial site, or is it just you?
Did your heart collide — with the Northern Lights?
And the Aurora Borealis dusted you — with its iridescent hue.
