A treasured gift

FEATHERED BEAUTY

Sapphire bluebird, is it true
That you were born to be so blue?
Or did you one day fly so high
You scraped some blue paint from the sky?

And what about your russet chest?
Was it stained within the nest?
Or when you flew above the crowds,
Was it skimmed from sunset clouds?

From whence they came should matter not,
God placed you in that color slot.
Feathered beauty from above,
A treasured gift of His great love.

FEATHERED BEAUTY

Sapphire bluebird, is it true

That you were born to be so blue?

Or did you one day fly so high

You scraped some blue paint from the sky?

 

And what about your russet chest?

Was it stained within the nest?

Or when you flew above the crowds,

Was it skimmed from sunset clouds?

 

From whence they came should matter not,

God placed you in that color slot.

Feathered beauty from above,

A treasured gift of His great love.
