Like A Song Bird - Poem by Leonard Dabydeen

Like A Song Bird

Every morning when I wake up
I open my dew-drenched sash window
to the lilting tune of the kiskadee
hopping and popping on a branch
of the jamoon tree
loaded with mouth-full bunches of
jamoon berries, purple and delicious
fresh-scented air wet with the morning dew
intoxicate my nostrils with a heave and sigh
I stretch my open arms
in welcome glee
to spread my soul among the trees
I wish my voice could echo
like a song bird
to make me free.
