“Never lose an opportunity to see anything that is beautiful.

It is God's handwriting - a wayside sacrament.

Welcome it in every fair face, every fair sky, every fair flower.”


Ralph Waldo Emerson



Music: Awakening




I headed out awfully early

For a dawn walk, in the dark

At the very end of my driveway

I soon spotted a tiny piece of bark


As I bent down, to look it over

It moved, and crept up my hand

Not bark at all, but a baby bird

And this one, was oh so grand


And now, from my open palm

It crept up my arm, to my head

And there it sat, in all its glory

So happy, not filled with dread


And soon, it began boldly chirping

“See! See! See!” now very exuberantly

As I slowly ambled over to the old maple

It now slowly crept from my head to the tree


And now, I watched in utter fascination

As it crept back up that old tree, to its nest

What a joyous family reunion now occurred

This hitchhiking infant was home with the rest


This tiny feathered newborn miracle of nature

Had obviously fallen out of its nest in the night

And now, I heard an entire chorus of song above

It was being welcomed home, in dawn’s early light


My tiny new hitchhiking friend is called a Brown Creeper

Its kind slowly creeps up the bark of trees, looking for meals

They have long beaks to root out insects, and also camouflage

Since they blend in with tree bark, they’re quite difficult to see



Never lose an opportunity to see anything that is beautiful.

It is God's handwriting - a wayside sacrament.


Welcome it in every fair face, every fair sky, every fair flower.


And, in every tiny newborn bird…

What a blessing this poem is! The theme of God's creation touching us and the encounter with the Brown Creeper is an experience in itself.
Thank you for writing about it.

Sweet story. I greatly enjoy watching baby birds once they've left the nest myself.

What a joyful poem and greeting you give us, Ed! It's amazing how the "wee ones" are so trusting; but I believe God's creatures know who to trust...
Blessings and Love - Micke

You really challenged yourself here. Following a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson means you have really got to shine. Well, you did. This was beautiful.
God Bless,

Oh brother PeeWee! don't tell me that you are gonna be another Birds Whisperer now that Jasmin have gonna whispering on the baby seals...
But, maybe, that bird was God telling you that He could match you with an new born bird, anytime you wish to say tanks look up and say it, because you are one of the few He bothers with.
