A Minor Bird

Robert Frost

 Next Poem          

I have wished a bird would fly away,
And not sing by my house all day;

Have clapped my hands at him from the door
When it seemed as if I could bear no more.

The fault must partly have been in me.
The bird was not to blame for his key.

And of course there must be something wrong
In wanting to silence any song.

    It's fascinating how we can become irritated by something as innocent as a bird's song, but then realize the problem may truly lie within ourselves. A surprisingly introspective piece.
