As birds are starting to head south, this reminds us of a 2013 writing by Doris: “Bird Talk”.
“I belong to the sky; God gave me wings.
Although I understand neither the mystery of flight
My wings have strength;
Each year they propel me thousands of miles
I belong to the sky;
Every morning I spread my wings
Mr. Bird, now listen to me. I am earthbound.
God gave you wings,
But He gave me a Promise
that one day I too will head heavenward.
There I’ll meet my Lord, my Savior and friend
But I’ll be flying without wings.
