Before the blazing
blue of summer sky,
your raucous calls and
feathered foolery,
your trickster moves
and flashing splendory,

catch even my eye.

May she beware your
silver-throated songs,
your prowess dance
of masculinity.

May she discover
creative power,
and a courageous flight plan
of her own,
discover self-reliance, heart
and mind,

before she settles for your nest
to call her home.
