On Stilled Wings, Soar

I was getting ready to mow the lawn and my wife was going to go to the grocery store. She came back inside to tell me that a baby bird was in the yard. It had fallen from its nest and was on the ground with its mouth open waiting to be fed. Using our stepladder, I placed it back in its nest and we hoped for the best. While mowing the lawn I noticed that there was a dead bird by our air conditioner. A few minutes after that, I saw that the baby bird had again fallen out of its nest. This time it was still.

    Return to the earth that gave you life;
    on stilled wings soar in skies
    you could never imagine.

"Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father." [Mt. 10:29]
