Those enticing worlds I fly above
upon whom my eyes spill colors
they think to catch me and see me full
in my piquant and enthralling finery
some proud ones wish to hunt me down
and see me perched in golden chains
and pluck from me my feathers
to obtain their courtly aureoles
or some miserable of those worlds
forever livid in their monotonic spirits
watch me with their adoptive eyes
to lure me to their fostered nests
and there are some insolent of them
while they shoo me away from theirs
in mine I keep them with no grudge
like untouched pallid fruits in acrid peels
I fly and I keep flying all the life
and with airs I shed my feathers far and wide
and if I am true and my blood intact
they all belong to me and I to them.
