'And This Year's Winner Is.....'...Who Cares? ....[Birds Seeking Food; Very Short; Humour/Humor]


The sparrows line up for their TAKE-off
on twigs strong enough not to BREAK off.
The time is drawing NEAR....
for event of the YEAR.....,
when crumbs are thrown out from the BAKE-off.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

a fanciful idea. i like both crumbs and birds. i may have been watching sparrows finding bread crumbs or birdseed outside my apartment window with snow surrounding them.

    You didn't share your cake with me? ? Why? ? At least the birds enjoyed it I suppose which is fair enough. (Report) Reply

    This is a great musing, Bravo Sir. Great imagery and the hint of freshly baked cake. MMMMM (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
