“Model of a Bird”
If you would like a treasure to fall into your lap,
Don’t look for a head that’s blocked; it would only trap.
In order to find your lap full of the joys of LIfe,
Just know you have found the secret when the heart in rhythm’s might
Beats the mighty Message in a tune so strong and clear
That to doubt its power and its magic would put you in a vale of tears.
So, you who are wise in singing and in using the model of a bird,
Why don’t you break through you cage and let your wings unfurl?
