The bird loves the nest he grew up in,

And the family that helped him grow there.

He is grown, and so are his nestmates.

But something is missing for him there.

They all search for a mate and a home,

But his dreams are bigger and brighter.

They seek shelter from grey clouds and rain,

But the clouds he dreams of are whiter.

He wants to fly, to explore the world,

He thinks as the wind around him swirls.

He spreads his white wings for the first time,

And sets off into the golden sky.
