The birds fly through the trees,
Enriching our eyes with each glimpse.
The freedoms we seek from birth,
Flowing on wings of fair-primps:
Feathers of nature-bound worth.
Whisper your secrets to me on air,
Creaking down stagnant-dreamers:
Trees that reach toward the heavens,
From the sun of divine-leavens.
Float through the halls of Valhalla,
O’ blessed creatures, soar and deliver,
The glory-soaked emancipations,
Of souls of vast times…now a quiver;
On birds with knowledge for all nations.
Freedom’s not a gift or privilege,
Something given to only a few.
Freedom’s what every spirit born,
Through all times and every land through,
Needs to count themselves earth-born.
For just as the sun daily shines,
And the trees reach to catch its’ beams.
The birds, just as us, must seek also,
To live an existence which gleams.
And flying with wings let ago…
As all the souls who’ve come and go,
To find life is a haven of limitless dreams!
