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

      So sad and beautiful at the same time - video and picture are perfect for it.

      Beautiful poem with some lovely words. I enjoyed the track by Marianne because it took me back to my teenage years (now 61). Lovely start to my morning. It is 3 a.m. UK time and I am up because I cannot sleep!

      What a beautiful poem a bit sad for the little bird but I guess that is nature.
