The one invulnerable man among
Crude captains, the naked majesty, if you like,
God gives every bird his worm, but He does not throw it into the nest.
And the one bird singing alone to his nest,
And the one star over the tower.
My heart is like a singing bird
Whose nest is in a watered shoot;
On an old shore, the vulgar ocean rolls
Noiselessly, noiselessly, resembling a thin bird,
The whole appearance is a toy. For this,
The dove in the belly builds his nest and coos,
Light-winged Smoke, Icarian bird,
Melting thy pinions in thy upward flight,
The cuckoo is a lazy bird,
She never builds a nest,
She makes herself busy
By singing to the rest.
Two feathered guests from Alabama, two together,
And their nest, and four light-green eggs spotted with brown,
The caged bird sings
with a fearful trill
