Oh bird! I wish had wings like you
Flapping and gliding over the sea and the clouds through
To explore the infinite glorious sky
Tell me little lark, how you manage to fly so high
Have you seen daffodils dance?
Like a saffron river ruffles to the mild breeze pass
Have you flown over the miles of meadows?
The grazing cows and sheep where their cry echoes
When you glide over the Ocean so vast
Do you feel tired and to rest, search for a mast?
Have you listened in the air the dolphins’ whistles?
Or seen the school of flying fish high above the sea ripples
I feel I am caged up and my world is so limited
Maybe I have material things that you never have experienced
You are much luckier than I, burdens or barriers are none
Sweet lark! You are free to explore where-ever you heart sets on
Oh bird! I wish I had wings like you
