A Little Bird

A poem by Jill Walsh ~ August 9, 2016

 

A little bird came hopping by, foraging for seeds

Enchanted I sat witness to, his dance amid the trees

 

A tail of white-tipped feathers splayed, head bobbing up and down

The subtle sound of shuffling feet, as he scratched the fertile ground

 

 He waltzed through dappled waves of light, with wings of brilliant hue

While rays of glistening sun unveiled, opalescent shades of blue

 

A triumphant chirp did soon resound, when grasped within his beak

The treasured prize uncovered, beneath the fallen leaves
