A Tale of a Caged BIrd


i met a cardinal in a cage.

I do not know the tale that landed him

behind bars,

cardinal with out a tail

but none of his tail feathers were there.

and so

while you may see the cage as a jail,

his tail tells a different story –

one of compassionate care.

we all need to be in cages somedays,

some we build ourselves,

some others put us in – until we can learn to fly.
