Sparrows in the Fountain

Sparrows in the fountain,
With their feathers all a’fluff,
Frolic and remind me
Sometimes Nature is enough.

I can feel the bonds releasing,
Where they’d tightened ‘round my heart,
As I sit and watch the sparrows
While they dip and douse and dart.

Though they’re not the main attraction,
As the flowers love to boast,
It’s the sparrows in the fountain
That call out to me the most.

So when Stress, though most unwelcome,
Pays an unexpected visit,
Just an hour with the sparrows
Is an antidote exquisite.

    Ilene, this is a great catch from your pot in the Poetrysoup....His eyes is on the lovely sparrows and that tells me He keeps me from so many arrows from the rows of so many cowards. Thanks for your comment on my poem.

    Cute one,and yes, birds can be so fun to watch. I miss our barn swallows that had occupied the spot above our garage with two nests last summer!!!

    It is a joy to watch them feed,sometimes seventy fold. They're such a sweet reminder of the greatest story told. Nice to share this wonderful joy. Peace. :)

    AAAh, I remember those dear little birds in the concrete jungles of Peckham when I was a kid. One of the few things that cheered me up in foggy old London. you are a wonderful rhyming poet , and I love your stuff....PeterCUEW
