A Poem About a Bird

10 Mar

I spied a tweeting songbird

Hop along the ground

In all my years of watching birds

I’d never heard that sound

starling

I listened to the songbird’s tune

A seductive note array

With stealth, I sidled closer

But the songbird flew away

I waited for that bird’s return

I stood for days on end

Eventually I up and left

Without my feathered friend

starling3

I waited for that bird’s return

I stood for days on end

I’d never heard that song before

And I never will again
