Looking out my patio window just now I saw so many different birds visiting my yard eating the birdseed I had put out.  Previous to today there had been only a flock of Chickadees and occasionally a robin but today many different kinds descended at once together! It seemed as if someone had created a flyer advertising a free lunch in my yard!  That thought inspired today’s poem 🙂

‘Tis Spring

Spring Flowers
Ah, Spring Fever is in the air
Let all beware
As minds will wander
And think and ponder
Then stop to sit in gardens green
Oh, so serene
Where dreams rise
To sunny skies
And bright colored flowers grow
Instead of snow
And songbirds sing
Ah, yes, tis Spring!

Aha! The Intruder

Cat in the MeadowI hear chirping in the meadow,
I run quickly to see!
Have the little songbirds returned?
Oh really, can it be?
Am I once again to be blessed,
by the sweet, cheerful sounds,
of the little creatures singing,
among the reeds that grace the grounds?

Ah, yes, I see a flutter, a movement on a reed!
But, now the chirping sounds alarming,
And causes me to wonder indeed!
The song is not one so charming,
but one full of alarm and fright.
A clear sound of warning,
a chirp commanding quick flight!

Then, out of the corner of my eye,
I see a movement in the grass.
What is out there in the meadow?
Something that seems to trespass…

Aha! Tis the neighbor’s cat,
Seeking to find the sound that she too heard.
She left her perch whereupon she sat,
to discover the chirping bird!

Now, this story has a happy ending,
of which I am glad indeed!
For the little bird took flight,
before the cat reached it’s reed!
