SOFTLY EVOKING

SOFTLY EVOKING
By: Darrelyn L .Tutt

Yesterday bridged me to a song I'd never heard before.
Kenny Rogers led me to it through yesterday's "Words" ... quite by accident.
The chorus captivated, the message resonated, and the words provoked.
Gentle. Forcible. Soft. Strong. Tender. Resilient. Evoking.
A winged message of contrast.
A woman composed of both sparrow and eagle.
Resilience, flight, and fight all woven into one.
Without further ado ...
 I welcome you to the words of Dolly Parton.

EAGLE WHEN SHE FLIES
By: Dolly Parton

She's been there
God knows she's been there
She has seen and done it all
She's a woman, she knows how to
Dish it out and take it all
Her heart's as soft as feathers
Still she weathers stormy skies
She's a sparrow when she's broken
She's an eagle when she flies

A kaleidoscope of colors
You can toss her round and round
You can keep her in your vision
But you'll never keep her down
She's a lover, she's a mother,
She's a friend, and she's a wife
She's a sparrow when she's broken
She's an eagle when she flies

Gentle as a sweet magnolia
Strong as steel, her faith and pride
She's an everlasting shoulder
She's the leaning post of life
She hurts deep and when she weeps
She's just as fragile as a child
She's a sparrow when she's broken
She's an eagle when she flies

She's a sparrow when she's broken
But she's an eagle when she flies
Oh, bless her Lord,
She's an eagle when she flies
