Nonsense for children to enjoy


When the Chickadee has the last laugh...

I have to share the feeder here

set in the ground by Johnny dear

Jays and squirrels come and fight

Peck and scratch with all their might

each one wants all of the seed

forgetting Johnny met the need

The feeder holds enough for all

including that woodpecker tall

I don't go near until their done

I wait to see which creatures won

Then down I fly from my tree

And chirpy chirp until they flee

It seems that size don't count for much

Yes nagging always gets me lunch........see

The tiny chick-a-dee visits my feeder all the time. When there is too much snow, I put seed on the windowsill. Chick-a-dee will come still, even when I stand near to the glass.
Nice uplifting poem.

Lovely and lilting with self-'chick-a-dee-dee-de' memories, Helen, metaphorical or not.

You know them well, a cute little ditty for a chicki, I go out every day or two, into the park and feed them by hand, I have made many friends of them, and yes they are brave, If I don't stop, they'll land on my hat and look down to my face to see if I am in there.
Enjoyed this whimsy, Happy Holidays! Jasmin Horst
