“I REALLY DO!” a poem 10 July 2019 (Woden’s Day!)
I love the little birdies (and kitties); they’re happy and gay,
And they chi-irp! and they me-eow – in-The-Most-Natural-Way!
They’re-so-shy (like me!) and-they-like-to-eat-too,
And-I-like-feeding-them nice-stuff, I do!
Golly, if-there’s-a-Heaven, I’m sure they’re from there;
They-don’t-seem-to-ever-hate-nothin’ – and haven’t-a-care,
UNLESS!!! Kitty shows up when the birdies are eating!
Then, they squawk-and-dive-bomb, giving kitty a beating!
Or, sometimes – when Mr. Raccoon shows up at night,
Then! “Tabby” and “Rory,” well, they have a little fight!
This-can-annoy-little-kitty, I-think -quite-a-lot,
But! They all seem-to kinda! sorta! get-right along,
And, at the end of the day, nothing’s too wrong!*
Also, sometimes! at the end of the day,
They’ll-leave-me notes, & they like to say:
“We certainly appreciate that you feed us and talk so nice!”
And, since-we have a nice yard, so they’ll-all-usually-visit-twice,
Or, maybe, five times! They’ll fertilize too!
I (just) love birdies! and kitties! and-the-raccoons, I do!
You-can-come-visit-us, for we’re seldom ever blue;
We’re white – and-brown, gray-and-yellow, occasionally-orange, with-a-reddish-hue,
& everyone shares, except when they don’t, but-there’s-plenty-for-me-and-you!
I love the little birdies (and kitties); I REALLY (really) DO!
- – except the birdies “count up,” mourning their fallen comrades!
