Leaving the Nest

By 16th November 2011December 9th, 2019No Comments

Have faith little fledgling
For thy Father gave thee wings
that will lift you as you fall
light as a feather you will fly.

Have faith little fledgling
For thy father gave thee a voice
of the sweetest note that
will sing amidst the treetops.

Have faith little fledgling
For thy father will provide the
means to find food and shelter
when the stark winter comes.

Have faith little fledgling
In thy parents urging you on
with each quivering feather
for they trust thy Father implicitly.
