Come, come, little birdie,

Come, come, little birdie,
Don't be scared
Come a little closer
The last thing I want,
is to scare you away.
Look what I have here,
In the palm of my hand.
A few rice grains,
Handpicked just for you,
My dear.
Fear not,
I mean no harm.
Ah yes, that's it.
Come, perch on my palm.
You are safe here,
You've got nothing to fear.

This poem was written in response to Sadje’s What Do You See prompt #49. Thank you, Sadje for hosting this challenge. The challenge is to use the picture prompt as inspiration to compose an original story, poem, or a caption.

For the visually challenged reader, the image shows a hand extended out with a little bird sitting on it. In the background one can see a lake and it’s shore in distance.

This October, I am taking my blog to the next level with #MyFriendAlexa.

  1. I do this everyday while feeding the birdies. We feed the crows, pigeons and sparrows and I always talk to them with the food extended in my hand. Such a sweet and beautiful poem for the little birdie.
