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
elegantly,
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?
