He leapt from dusty blinds upon the floor

Chasing quiet echoes in the morning 

Seen by sunlight filtered through the cracked door 

His brother flittered yesterday at four

So in solidarity or mourning

He leapt from dusty blinds upon the floor

Flapping curtains led him to the lakeshore, 

The trumpets celebratory horning,

Seen by sunlight filtered through the cracked door

They’ll try to catch you now and ever more 

But he flittered with deaf ears adorning 

He leapt from dusty blinds upon the floor

He’d walk but there are no feet to be worn 

Only alive till grace of midmorning

He leapt from dusty blinds upon the floor

Seen by sunlight filtered through the cracked door

A music major writes for a blog. That's the joke. You get it?
