I Saw A Mocking Bird

I Saw A Mocking Bird ballad

Photo by AlanH2O

I saw a mocking bird upon a tree,
alone, chirping a tune
the skill of imitation bore he
as it sang amid the gloom.
Children played in the fields
adults conversed freely,
but of the bird in the broken still
faces thought him silly.
O beautiful composer of the skies
your deep music is superb,
but can never be fully realized
the song of a mocking bird.

Two poems, one on a song bird and one on a mockingbird, read one after the other –
Two different perspectives, and yet the wings are made of words.

The Bird Nest short poem
