Oh, Beautiful Bird©

 

Oh Beautiful Bird

On the perch

In the cold going out

For your little ones

In their nest

Waiting for food.

 

I can hear your happy

Songs, in spite of your

Struggle to find a scrub.

You’re jetty and gay

Skipping, turning your

Head every other way

With a happy flutter

Of your wings.

 

What made you so

Sure you’ll reach your

Goal, and find what

You’re looking for?

Is it Faith? Or is it

Sheer hope? Oh what

Make you so persistent

Never giving up your search?

 

Or is it the simple life instinct

That if you stay over

At your nest with fear

And idle notion,

That snow has covered All, your realistic view

Of things would be

The death of you,

Laying there with

Frozen Wings?!

 

So, here you are

Flying to every tree,

Trying every branch,

And even on the ground

Turning every leaf around

Never fathom, never accepting

Your current circumstance.

Hello! It is winter, but, Oh,

Look at our bird

Never accepts No, or

Snow, for an answer.
