Blackbird Fly

Fly on Home

Fly on Home

Fly on

Fly away

With a soothing song

In my soul


Fly on

Fly away

Into my castle

In the sky


Sailing through the clouds

Where I am King

Nothing hurts me

I get to sing


Sing a song

Where I am love

Up in the sky

With the dove



Sail away

Back home

Where I'm safe


Fly on home

Fly on home

Fly on... Home

About the Creator

Rick Henry

Writing is a distraction for me. It takes me to places unknown that fulfill my need for intellectual stimulus, emotional release, and a soothing of the breaks and bruises of the day.

    This was so good. Of course you had me at the title Blackbird is my favorite Beatles song. Great prose!

    Oh, the freedom and thrill to fly! We’ve all wanted to do this…and feel the wind if we had wings to capture that exhilaration! You captured this wonderful wish in your poem, Rick!

    i really liked this, often feel like flying away. I find that a flight someplace else such as the sky, makes home feel more comfortable. Not sure my interpretation was yours, but I've been listening to freebird, Right where I am at today
