Blackbird – by Maria Mandrussow

Blackbird spinning in the wind
Tell me what went wrong
Tell me what went right

I sit here, watching as you fly
You don't have to climb
Trade your wings for my eyes

Tell me, after all that you have seen
With your unclipped velvet wings
What land do you call home

And does the lone moon make you cry
Or do you watch it as you fly
And fill your heart with song

Blackbird, I don't mean to pry
But there's no pain in your eyes
And it makes me want to know

If my voice had wings of its own
Would you carry it when you go
And teach me how to fly
