An old friend stopped by
To visit me
Havenít seen her in almost a year
Last time it is was dusk
After a beautiful clear day
Had ended with a glorious sunset.

That was the first time
I heard her
As I exit a friendís house
Several miles away
This time she was perched
Atop a roof of the house
Directly a crossed
From where I was watering
My garden beauties
Coo , coo, she said
With a sort of sad tone
For once again, I found her
To be alone.

I said to her in a low
Tone of voice
Just so she would be
The only one listening to me
Hi, old gal
Alone again, where have you been?
You know,
I often think about you
For you really made an impression
Within my mind and soul
As I heard you then
Cooing a sad tune
Reminding me of an old gal
Who once Again will be spending
Another night alone.

"A Re- Visit And A Sad Coo"

Oh these are sweet words William.
I just love watching birds they seem so inquisitive.
Futhermore, they surely do seem self sufficient and reliable too!
Once they find a special little place they will frequent time and time again.
Enjoyed your personification of the little visitor.
All the best wishing you abundance

From the Heart...

This is lovely, William. I have several mourning doves who come to our ground feeder every day. They're so pretty and from what I've read, they mate for life. I loved hearing that. A charming write.

A beautiful melancholy nature piece, William...

As long as the re-visit of the coo-coo doesn't result in a fly-over deposit of "fine feather'd fertilizer" while you were tending garden, I'm sure you and "Old Gal" will spend lots of springs and summers enjoying each others company. (smile)
blessin's, this is nice to read after doing taxes, thanks Bro. Wm,

What a sad heartfelt piece, yet within a note of perhaps opportunity!? Old friends can again be new friends! I like the way you set about this (if I am not reaading more into it than I should), and if I am then it is indeed a lovely gem just the same! Glad to see and read your wor again!

My suggestion is to invite here over for a
Drink and maybe she will coo and cook!
Opportunity is knocking your door!
Excellent write a little sad but
Great imagery and topic of this poem
Love And Peace to You Always
Your Friend....Morning Star

You do nature, and life, extremely well, William. And those mournful coos can be quite powerful.

It was really a dove...or you just don't want the missus to know?
What you meant with the watering-my-garden's-beauties Symbolism?
You are centainly a slippery one.
Then again....I like the poem very much.

Such is life for those too afraid to wander out of their comfort zones...and still...a year could go by and they haven't changed a bit!
Sad but oh so true...lonely coo...coo-coo?
I like this even though its expressed it so creatively William~
Love and Peace~

Such a beautiful and heartfelt write my friend, but such a sad one! This reminds me of the cooing doves that I hear early in the mornings here on my farm...their beautiful animals and give one an overwhelming sense of peace, yet a lonesome feeling...enjoyed this write very much...always a pleasure to stop by and read your work!
