Little Darling

There’s sun on the river and sun on the hill . . .
You can hear the sea if you stand quite still!
There’s eight new puppies at Roundabout Farm-
And I saw an old sailor with only one arm!

But everyone says, “Run along!”
(Run along, run along!)
All of them say, “Run along! I’m busy as can be.”
Every one says, “Run along,
There’s a little darling!”
If I’m a little darling, why don’t they run with me?

There’s wind on the river and wind on the hill . . .
There’s a dark dead water-wheel under the mill!
I saw a fly which had just been drowned-
And I know where a rabbit goes into the ground!

But everyone says, “Run along!”
(Run along, run along!)
All of them say, “Yes, dear,” and never notice me.
Every one says, “Run along,
There’s a little darling!”
If I’m a little darling, why won’t they come and see?

Success! You're on the list.

“AMAZING BIRDS!” a poem a.k.a.: “Poem of The Rising Phoenix!” September 4, 2019 (Wednesday)

“AMAZING BIRDS!” a poem a.k.a.: “Poem of The Rising Phoenix!” September 4, 2019 (Wednesday)

I just think it’s AMAZING! that the birds COME DOWN – and dance on the ground,

Grab a bite to eat, dancing-on-their-feet, and then, back-way-in-the-air-they’re-found!

Or! They’ll be sitting on a wire, higher than I could ever throw a ball!

BIRDS! Up! There! and-down! Here! And they almost NEVER fall!

They just are: flappin’ and chirpin’ –

Yet, after they eat their bread, I almost never hear ’em burpin’ !

Or fartin’ !!! BUT – (Yup!) They be poopin’ –

So-I-clean-it-up-usually-off-the-porch! But, y’-know, I’m NOT-a-scoopin’ ,

Like I might do with kitty! Nooooooo! I just sweep the solidified uric acid concentrate

AWAY!

AMAZING BIRDS! IF they wanted to go a million miles, I bet they could do it in a day!

‘Cause – THEY GO SO FAST, they sometimes don’t see my glass,

And they bounce OFF my window! and, then, sometimes [Sniff! sniff!] they “pass,”

And go off to Heaven, flying higher and higher,

And they join, high, high above us, in The Sweet Angel Choir!

There, they ALL “sing like birds,” and they’re happy and gay!

BIRDS! THEY’RE AMAZING!

To: The Rising Phoenix –

I-do pray!
