    I'm transcribing from this poem reading;

    Freedom Bird

    The freedom bird descends to purest heights
    above the mountains, across the fountains
    hovering about the unknown paths above the wordily wrasses
    into space uncharted where clouds rain on trout (?)
    with static motion above the ocean
    In an easy glide define time it feels its freedom sublime
    and knows of its delight the feeling so right
    unhurried but graceful in a height so spaceful
    with desired distinction, grace perfection
    a pure urge, the freedom surge.

    Urge is the bird to fly
    not a path but feeling true not for a moment, for eternity
    to feel this feeling an expression of love and heartfelt
    a delight and thankfulness.

    The tears rolled down, not born of soar but keen delight
    no care for destination, the beating hearth with a message
    “only for you” when whispers confirming the feeling
    sunshine is high above as it cheers on;

    Soar freedom bird. Soar.
    Feel it, the sky is yours.
    Stretch little bird. Stretch.
    Stretch those lovely wings.

    Even the father of time has paused its hand as it looks upon you with an infinite smile
    Gone is the cage
    Gone is the rage on our confinements
    no matter what you heard again and again someone trying to ease your pain, you knew so did your hearth
    all you ever felt was the freedom taught
    console by many to accept the cage from which you could be admired, but for you the feeling held true
    the true freedom your heart desired
    nothing could contain your feeling
    and freedom was your healing
    you could not be held for you knew too well the desire that your hearth desired
    Not golden cages, not long story pages, treasures of past ages
    nothing at all outweighs to our heart cages, for once felt so deep the feeling rages so steep
    To feel again the time stopped the wonderful freedom about
    nothing can convince the hearth as it beats within and pounds ever louder
    to be free

    ???
    The dictionary says that a wrasse is a kind of fish (so it a trout) but has no entry for "wordily".

    wordily? Perhaps verbose? Or not ...

    Wordily: ORIGIN Old English wordig (see word , -y 1 ).

    Wrasse: ORIGIN late 17th cent.: from Cornish wrah; related to Welsh gwrach, literally ‘old woman.’

    Talkative old women?

    Thank you, there were many words — like wordily, or wrasses — that I'm not sure if I'm listening them correctly on the video.
