TAKE THESE WINGS

I found a sparrow lying on the ground.
Her life I knew would soon be at an end.
I knelt before her as she made a sound
And listened as she said, "My friend,"
Oak tree
"Take these wings and learn to fly
To the highest mountain in the sky.
Take these eyes and learn to see
All the things so dear to me.
Take this song and learn to sing.
Fill your voice with all the joys of spring.
Take this heart and set it free!
Let it fly........... beyond the sea!"
I found a another sparrow on the sand.
A tiny bird whose life had just begun.
I picked him up and held him in my hand.
I smiled at him and said, "My son,"
"Take these wings and learn to fly
To the highest mountain in the sky.
Take these eyes and learn to see
All the things so dear to me.
Take this song and learn to sing.
Fill your voice with all the joys of spring.
Take this heart and set it free!
Let it fly........... beyond the sea!"
