Forth, or: Grounded

My 1st Alouette

Writing on and on,
Calling for black swan,
Which shall soar forth from down(ed) soul,
Bearing long-lost words.
That rarest of birds...
Without which, I can't be whole.
I'm... sure it is true...
Should I continue,
Free, winged truth shall arise.
Oh, desperately,
I will this to be,
Ere rising into the skies.
