Palm Warbler – Poem by Barry Middleton

they never sit for a second
their song is high and faint

a cheeping that sounds
yellow like their breast
Palm Warbler, Setophaga palmarum by Marcia Verleta

they are like feathered
over active children

the way they dart about
bobbing their dun tails

they never sit for a second
their song is high and faint

a cheeping that sounds
yellow like their breast

they dart away from me
in a naughty guilty panic

caught stealing pine nuts
ashamed and a bit scared

About Dream Catcher

The heart knows what it wants. We can be surprised or welcoming to what we get. As life unfolds we can be prepared. We are fortunate to know and have what we truly desire. I enjoy waking up to the realization that my dreams are my reality.
