Feather Baby


Wrapped up in a picture frame
surrounded by feathers
my gentle, sweet baby
I'll keep you safe forever.
Is that leopard print around you
and fluffy soft white fur?
Oh, I love to protect you
you just make me want to love you more.
You're so darling when you smile
your eyes are so warm
and you just look so gentle
standing there by your car
and you shine in the city
you turn the streets Silver,
my sweet feather baby
I need a feather pillow
let me hold you next to me
and watch me from my dresser
let hold you when I sleep
with my stuffed dinosaur
oh, your pictures are so sweet
you just make me want to love you more.
I wish you'd been my protector
when I needed someone to look up to
Oh, I wish you had been there
I could've really always loved you.
We'd just be so soft and precious
I'd never let you hurt
after all, you're so delicate
you're made of feathers.

Oh, and your wife and kids,
I'd adopt them too
oh, we should've been
we could've been so cute.
But I love you all anyway
even though you never rescued me
even though you're a million miles away
I know someone out there is sweet;
my feather baby.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
