A bird whose wing was broke

A bird whose wing was broke
Fell from grace to the ground below
And hopped with a hobbled hop
To my window sill
Where I saw him try to fly,
His beating wings a fluttering
To lift him high and higher still
But back he fell a stuttering
Till at last he stopped and hopped again
To hide among the undergrowth
And as he hopped away
I feared he would not last the night
For birds that flew but cannot fly
Are doomed to die.
