NaPoWriMo/ GloPoWriMo 2017 Day Twelve

Substitute Birdsong

Birdy, birdy,
I don’t think you like my song
you flew off before the chorus.

Woodpigeon, scoping
from a chimney top,
on the edge of the ridge;
neither livery nor clerical,
you wear your jabot feathers
although it’s windy
and they’re ruffled,
you watch on.
Beady seed eyes,
why so discreet,
why, what can you see?

If I stop singing, will you
share with me what’s
going on?
