Little birdie out my window,
Chirping, calling, “Come and play!”
Can’t you see I want to join you—
Work, I must, this day away!
But when I’m through, I promise you:
Nothing here could make me stay.
I will find you through and through,
We will play the day away!
Reblogged this on Poetic Alyssa and commented:
This is so cute, I love it!
Thank you! The birdie was really cute, too!
Wow, this is such a cute poem!
Thank you! Cute seems to be the right word for it. ;)
Fun and playful :)
Thank you! It made me smile when I was working on a Saturday… :)
I’m gonna read it to my daughter. It’s a great one for the kiddies ;-)
Aww, I hope she likes it! How old is she? I’ve forgotten.
She’s almost 2 and liked it; was pointing at the birdies the whole time!
Aww, I’m so glad to hear that. I’ll bet she’s adorable! You should post a picture of her sometime. :)
Cuteness oozing out!
Haha, Subh! I’ll take that as a compliment. ;)
beautiful capture :) Have a great Sunday, Jessica!
Thanks, Sam! I hope you had a great day, too. (And the birds are calling to me again. They just don’t let up!)
Lol… go play girl, you deserve a break! :D
I will! Just as soon as I get these articles done…
Hey, little birdie, when you’re done, come with us! Not just play, we’ll sculpt the light and slap the thunder, and we’ll cuddle the moon and kiss the sun! :-)
Take care, Jess, many blessings and much love to you ♥
Thanks, Subhan. The same to you. I have a feeling little birdies are capable of far more than we give them credit for. ;)
Temporarily living in the Texas hill country (Kerrville) where there are a plethora of beautiful birds, one in particular the Painted Bunting. We have several different feeders and bird baths that attract them all, including wide range of wildlife too — it’s a ZOO sometimes!
Nevertheless, I’ll need to share your poem with my mother; she’ll love it more than I did I’m sure. Hope you’re having a super weekend considering your previous post. :)
Wildlife is pretty awesome. I had a good time even just looking at photos of birds while trying to find a pic to go along with this poem. I love seeing the different kinds of birds in different parts of the world, too. Things we all take for granted.
I hope your mom likes the poem. My previous poem was an act of nostalgia more than anything—no worries. I’ve been working on freelance stuff all weekend. Will actually be much relieved when this weekend is done!
Hope you’re having a great weekend, too. :)

Thanks, Walter! I owe it all to the birdie. :)
I love the playful nature of this post amidst the stress and work that you’re obviously dealing with. Great post -AB
Thanks so much, Arash! I had fun creating it—it was a good distraction. ;) (p.s. be looking in your inbox very, very soon!)
Delightful. I love the essence you’ve captured, wild and free. ♥
Thank you! I had fun with this one. I love birds! Can you imagine how dull life would be without them?
