The Little Bird (poem)

Updated on May 10, 2013

A lonely night a little bird

Again no single song was heard

Now stars do cry upon that tree

Where nothing new again occurred


An common bird no trouble he

Near pointless was his destiny

For each bright day was like the last

For someone else’s eyes to see


Shear emptiness to fill its past

No memories were there amassed

It often wondered why it’s here

Its uselessness appeared so vast


It watched a family so near

Whose Joy was shared for all to hear

They worked all day for chick in nest

They searched for food both far and near


Why couldn’t he have been so blessed

A little change a little zest

This endless dream a chance to break

A chance to bring his soul some rest


Into the tree there came a snake

The chicks alone its chance partake

The bird at last could something be

Would it break its past mistake
