Feathered Freeloaders

PoetVids - I am WriteBeLight only in Video Version :)

They land for free,

To chirp and feed.

Aren’t charged a price,

Free eats, indeed.


I think they’re beautiful,

Some of Nature’s best.

They split the seeds,

Leave quite a mess.


But, I don’t mind.

No, I don’t care.

I’ll pass the time,

With a long gaze and stare.


Sometimes they don’t,

Get along.

Not share the food,

Or the others’ song.


But, disappoint,

I’d say no.

They’re always putting on,

Quite a show.

  • Comment from author about the poem: I really love this Woodpecker. The other birds seem afraid of him. But, they get on with eating, one a little nasty to the other over sharing. :)

    Woodpecker is it? Colourful.
    The 'mess' would not be much of a problem in that environment - looks fairly wild ....

  • L. B. Mek

    subtle, humble and Beautiful!
    thanks for sharing, dear poet
