Good Morning, Little Birds

I awoke from a deep, deep sleep

To the sound of a chirp, chirp, cheep

Coming from the secret keep

‘Tween the leaves of my American Beech


Climbed to the top of the tree

With my glasses so that I could see

The difference amongst the three

Little birds perched next to me


In a nest little chicks of blue

And a grey sort of shaded hue

One boy and a girl or two

Sweet tweets calling out for food


Quick Mommy bird came to land

Her talons digging in my hand

I had not conjured up a plan

To deal with this angered ma’am


‘Sweet Ma, I only wanted to see

Little birds singing in my tree,

I’m sorry to have caused a scene

So, offense was not what I mean.’


Momma bird didn’t want to know

Only told me to get and go

‘Good bye little Mary, Ann, Joe.

I was sorry to disturb your home.’


From my window I try to spy

Momma bird as she flies on by

Through the glass I wave goodbye

‘Fore climbing the tree for a friendly, ‘hi!’
