Birdhouse Painting


It lived on the wall when I was a child
It meant the world to me
I tried to sketch it on paper
For my aunt painted it, you see.

I pictured those birds fluttering about
A father and mother they were
When babies peeked their little heads out
My heart would feel such a stir.

No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
