Beautiful Birds

Hawk-like shrills blue jay foreshadowing majestic fierceness As robins scurry to protect their young flying frantically to and from the nest The jays advancing while battle cries are sung Our first sign of spring with the red/orange breast bravely defending against the unwanted guest Petite chickadee is joined by male cardinal sharing a feeder Round white-cheeked friend with black cap with red-plumaged pretty boy Four birds beautiful on their own flying together where I call home Contest: "For (Four) Beautiful Birds Written By: Shani Fassbender April 25, 2011

    I'm so sorry Constance; I have changed it for you now. My Soup Mail is on; I have been chatting back and forth with Nikko. Sorry you could not get access there to contact me. It should be up and running. Thank you. This contest was fun to do with the different forms...challenging and exciting.

    You must have your soup mail turned off, anyways, you need to change the form of your poem to Free Verse, as per the contest description~~

    way to go with four different birds and using the forms for this contest, Shani. I bet Constance loves it. CAn't wait to try this myself. Thanks for your lovely model!!

    Shani, you did an outstanding job combining all these forms and describing the many birds. I love the way the robin wants to protect her nest from the jays. They can be fearsome predators. Best wishes in Constance's contest! Love, Carolyn
