Birds {10 short poems}

Oh, you little birds;
Happy to see you in your nest, so pretty,
so nice clinging to your mother’s breast

Wish my castle
Be like your nest where
God always rests

Wish to speak to you
In softest words, don’t shy away
As it pains me all the way

In a day, you will fly away
Sweet birds, up in the sky a happy fly
Not known to me your way

Only your songs
Treasured in my memory will
Chase you wherever you go and stay

Clear and blue is the sky
Grasses green and trees in leafage anew
You seem happy singing all day through

Such is the power of your
Liquid notes melting down darkness
Into dawn to greet the day-king at morn

Carry live orchestra on wings
Deliver priceless melodies at will, so tender
And serene that attract all to your ring

Always happy, through field
And forest you fly to where you care
Trilling your gratefulness to earth and sky you share

Oh, birds, tell me your secrets
Of happiness that I long for ever
Or carry me on your wings to Heaven
Where happiness flows ever and ever.......

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
