I held a bird
in my hand,
small and injured,
warm and soft.
Its heart beat wildly--
a tickle of feathers
a scratch of feet--
as it struggled
to gain the air.

I caught my breath,
and said a prayer
while I held fast,
hands cupped round
its desperate body,
as if I could keep
its fragile life
from slowly ebbing
away.

This is so sweet and so sad:( I am a bird (and animal) lover and this one tugged at my heartstrings, good emotion in so short a space, shows good use of language.

Aww not only does this capture ones heart.
But takes me back to when I were a lad.
Looked after bird with broken wing for a couple of weeks. As I was letting it out to fly off. It hit its head on my dads lawnmower and killed itself..
Reviewed by Lisa Hilbers
It wasn't you or death he feared, it was the unknown.
You have a kind heart, and he was lucky enough to feel it's tenderness.
Touching and caring write.
