Little Birdie

Bella Shepard



Little Birdie wild and free

Will you sing a song for me?

A trill, a warble, a little tweet

Each morning brings a sound so sweet


I hear you call to friends nearby

And listen for their swift reply

Your sound conveys a special meaning

I wish I knew what you were feeling


Each note a letter, each group a word

A language I have never heard

What do you say when you call out

What is your message all about?


I stand transfixed at dawn each day

In awe of what you have to say

Peace surrounds me, welcome bliss

Each note becomes a gentle kiss


You sit perched high upon a wire

I stand and watch and never tire

I pause and listen in perfect calm

Your tones for me a healing balm


I’d wish the morning never end

That I might keep my special friend

That I might stand with just us two

And hear your song the whole day through

    The birds sure are singing a merry tune just now, which I assume is mating season.

    • Bella Shepard

      Thank you so much, such a sweet comment. I suppose mating season is a good reason to break out in song.

          The beauty of Nature's Chorus is a delight Bella.

            I adore your steady and rhythmic rhyming patterns. It really suits the tone you're going for. I can imagine the birds passing by and singing a song of pure delight. Wonderfully executed!

            • Bella Shepard

              Thank you dear Rocky for your lovely comment. They do make for a happier day!

              I have a special affinity for nature and I think we underestimate animals as well. Our own biases preclude accepting them as equals. We do know birds do communicate and are very intelligent. A beautiful flow to the poem that emulates the song of a bird and the rhyme was soothing as well. Well done

                Thank you dear friend for your lovely words. I watch them every day at the feeder on my deck, and they fascinate me beyond words. So glad that you enjoyed the poem.

                    Really like your poem .. especially the line β€˜ each note becomes a gentle kiss β€˜

                    Birds are so beautiful .. and can have such a calming effect on the mind . I love listening to them

                    • Bella Shepard

                      Thank you for your kind comments. I love the bird surrounded by flowers that must be very indicative of you, and a beautiful name as well.
