Bird Bath


Sipping so gently,

Their little beaks.

Fresh hydration,

Their bodies seek.


Dip their heads,

And, gently fill.

Water drops,

Into their bills.


Some dive in,

To take a bath.

Splash with vigor,

Wet wings, thrash.


Into the bath,

That’s filled there so,

They stop for a while,

Get refreshed and go.


Every morning,

I rinse and clean.

Bird bath of mine,

By the feeder’s seen.


I clean the husks,

From sunflower seeds.

An important task,

Bath's germ free.

    • Goldfinch60

      Good write, I have three bird baths to clean out, some birds are fickle about which obpnes they will use.

        I hate it when the Robins get in there are make a mess and splash all of the water out. But, the cute chickadees and other smaller ones are very cute and sweet. Thanks Goldfinch!

            Thanks Michael. I am in the mood to write about the new Spring season and all that comes with that including the returning song birds. I do enjoy them very much! Thanks again 🙂

            I like how they line up (or should I say tree up) for their turn in the bath. And the Robins do splash too much. Nice write. - Phil A.

              Thanks Phil. The little birds have manners 🙂
