Once upon a time, there was a little girl…
Who watched the birds fly as their wings curl..
She had to see the world and knew she could try,,
So she sewed a pair of wings and painted it sky…
Once upon a time the kings raged a war,
They snatched away her wings and trapped them in a jar..
They took away the needles and colours of sky,
And shot arrows with the note “Do not dare to fly!”
Once upon a time the arrows broke down,
Music and love surrounded the town..
The little girl learnt to dance and heal sick birds,
And collected their feathers to write afterwards…
Once upon a time the girl found some yarn,
She spun it with the feathers and people begun to warn..
Running through the fields, crying with joy,
She spread her wings and learnt to fly….
