A tiny bird upon my window sill
Who sits and rests his weary wings
And views the world from lofty perch
Has freedom that most men would envy

He has no job, or bills, or rent
No telephone shrill, to jar his ear
The grocery store is everywhere
And food is free upon his table

His children grow and leave his nest
He doesn’t worry ‘bout drugs and stuff
The news in countries far and wide
Has little interest in his life

He has vacation in the winter
In southern climes so pleasant
And travels north for summer fun
And never loses luggage.

Ahh birdie ‘pon my window sill
My jealousy is showing
I want that freedom you enjoy
I wish for wings to fly!

Who has never dreamed of being a bird? Of returning to that state of freedom that humans must have known thousands of years ago... Sweet poem on a universal longing.

I spend hours and hours every day, just watching all the different species of birds, around my house. They are simply gorgeous and perfect creatures.
Without a care, (or so it seems) that the world is filled with hate and violence. Nothing fazes them in their daily quest for nourishment. So we feed them, happily, so they will continue to bless our lives.
Enjoyed this Sandi.

My Dear Sandi,
Every once in a while I will come across a poem that everything
a great poem should contain; ( in my humble opinion).
You've created the essense of natures most interesting creatures.
I love birdds and all your thoughts about their pure lives
are wonder-filled inspirational!!!!
I see the most remarkable bird species around my house and most of the time I am not even looking.
Cardinals....Mocking Birds....King Fishers.....Falcons and Doves
Other birds I haven't any idea what names they have.
But I also own the smartest Old World Parrot....who is the
most wonderful little family member ...and his intelligence is something one has to witness to believe!
Excellent piece!

Lovely Ode to our feathered friends, Sandi, and I, too, am often envious of their lifestyle, but I truly do love observing them.

Canadians that fly south in the winter are called "Snowbirds." Yes I want to be one of them! Okay so its not the natural wings but it is the next best thing :-) Excellent nature write and very orginal.

Me, too!! Treasure the Carolina wrens who nest in a mailbox on the back deck so much, I am thinking of putting together a collection about them. Teach us so much, don't they? Really enjoyed this.
Thank you for posting it. 'Pea' <3 PS: When you write like this, you fly. Feel it?
