Birds...A Reflection in the Mirror of God's Love (inspirational poetry)

The feathered ones, those to fly,

And have such freedom in the air,

The chatterers, the whistlers, their songs,

All these creatures, are so very fair.


Colors of the brightest rainbow,

Plumage accentuated, in fine attire,

As gifts, by the creator's hand, to this world,

And to us each does so inspire.


Marvelous birds, of such a rare beauty,

To us endowed, and by the father, to each bestow,

All wonders to behold, such precious dressings,

A part of Mother Nature's grandest show.


The water birds, so slender and regaled,

In greatest admiration, all are hailed.

The wild ducks, the geese, none too frail,

As they lift strong wings and fly, to sail.


The fine hawks, eagles, to soar in heights,

Defying odds, in their daring flights.

Wisest owls, so stoic, do seem demure,

Challenge fleetest, in the darkest nights.


Blue song birds, cardinals, cloaked in red,

A joyful awakening from our warm bed.

Partridges, quail, pheasants, well bred,

Their pleasant chorus, for us all, to spread.


The Baltimore Orioles, Robins, and Blue Jays,

Share their music in concerts, to raise,

As the small Chickadees, Sparrows and Martins,

Join in, with lovely voices of praise.


While black birds, crows, across broad fields,

Protest and to call, in a fond jest,

Every feathered friend, the lord does send,

Delights us each, as we are so blessed.


The special bird families, are marvels, so fine,

The Penguins, Ostrich, and Emus, all divine.

Every bird a blessed creature on this green earth,

Make all the difference in our lives, by their worth.

      Oh, I truly love birds and watching them. My mother's favorite was the cardinal and its beautiful song. She also was so fascinated by owls too.

      Your lovely paintings are always such a treat. I especially love the one with the cardinal as it reminds my of my mother's love for the cardinal.

      Beautiful as always.

      I hope you are enjoying a lovely Sunday.

      Whonu, birds are so fascinating. I love watching them. We have teeny birds here that like to forage in the grass. I have no idea what they are, but they're well camouflaged by the grass, they're so small! Then we have pileated woodpeckers. They're huge and very colorful. I think my favorite of all are the red-shouldered hawks. They glide so effortlessly through the air. Sometimes it seems as though they're simply out for a joy ride, enjoying the blue skies and gentle breezes.

      I love birds. I'm lucky to live within a countryside that has plenty of variety; woodland, moor, canal and sea. My favourite is the blackbird and the most exotic I've seen is a hoopoe, apart from all the amazing birds in Australia and New Zealand.

      You've covered so many here in your delightful walk through the bird population, giving them their apt characteristics.
