"She...her wings and will not fly" | 31-Aug-05

The only bit of the poem I have is the last line:
"She...her wings and will not fly"
I think it refers to a bird, I thought a lark but this has not helped me find it.  Any help you might be able to provide would be very much appreciated.

Is this from 'the Bat' by Ruth Pitter?

'The Bat' by Ruth Pitter includes the lines "In the lamplight, painfully / It limped about, and could not fly." The bat has been caught by a cat. This poem is in Ruth Pitter's Collected Poems, published by Enitharmon in 1996.

A friend of mine has been looking for a special poem written by Ruth Pitter for thirty years, about a bat that was dark and neandathol. Can you help us find the poem, Please
