Uncage the Songbird

Written by: John Heck

Foregoing the fool
A tattered heart slept
In a reticule.
Two drawstrings pulled tight
To obscure the light.

Emotions fraught
With second thought
Perfected a
Silent reply.

Nightingales
With clipped wings
Rarely sing.

Free your
Soul and

Fly!



Dedicated to my wonderfully terrific Father:

Happy Valentines Day, Dad.
Miss and will always love you, Johnny.
