The Voice Of A Bird

The voice of a bird

Freedom is my birthright.
Captivity does me never suit.
Being a prisoner is no joy.
Must I surf the winds in a buoy.

A cage is no place for me.
Lovely blue sky is my acme.
Your cage golden and shining.
by no means make comforting.

The Lord made the forest lush.
Thither to dwell is my wish.
Whither food nature lends,
fresh water plenty in crystal ponds.

In the streams my thirst quenched.
In the glades sweet voices heard.
In the vales let me glide freely.
Sing’ ng notes of liberty gaily.

A cage is no place for me.
Lovely blue sky is my acme.
Freedom is my birthright.
Captivity does me never suit.
