Lovely little Lucy
Let me give you light
Let me lift the shades a bit
Restoring you with sight

Fluff your feathers Lucy
And leave the bonds of night
Within your cage you can’t engage
In wonderment of flight

The door is widely open
And yet you choose to rest
You’ve clucked and I have spoken
Now I leave you to your nest.

In afternoon I shall return
To tease and plead and beg
An honorable quest, I’ll do my best
To lure you off that egg.

You’ve imprisoned yourself in a safe, sheltered pen
Guarding unfertile eggs like a proud mother hen.
