Amidst the trees
a small bird lives--
Trying to sing
what tomorrow might bring.

It plays in its nest,
that serves as its crest.
Swaying with the air,
it might fall! Beware.

And, now the sky
has darkened.
A storm so sly
has stricken.

Soon, the storm
has weakened.
The nest is gone--
all is broken.

It's sad
but that's life.
The last song
is no more cried.
