Despisest thou gold?
despisest I cared?
or pictures of old?
or treasures of Christmas's shared?
Or would'st thou
much rather
a dither, a dather
a fistful of money
and much parsimony?
I think that we be
of birds, not the same ~
For I have my roost
and you have your game,
and gently I nest
to hatch out an egg
whilst you mock the cat
and later, must beg.

The flow here is excellent. I especially like the last four lines, not juts because of the rhyme but because of the meaning in that part. "whilst you mock the cat... and later, must beg".... I like the old-school language, using words such as "whilst". this gives the poem a very professional and classical feel. keep up the good work!
