Woman and her Birds

She lets out her hand that holds the bird feed Inviting birds to come and take a bite There’s one brave soul that does come on over And he feasts on the seed that she carries Then more and more of them come on to her Some sit on her shoulders, others sit near In her other hand sits more feed for them And they flock there as well to eat some more They eat with a flourish, making a mess Seed falls onto the ground, birds eat there too She’s surrounded totally by these fowl But unafraid she is, loving each heart These birds are her friends, always there for her Never do they judge her or frown on her They are always glad to see her come by They predict her coming and are waiting And she is constantly there on the dot Same time each day she comes with her bird feed Wanting to share it with her lovely friends She’s mesmerized by their tenacity They’re persistent to try and get their food To survive, that is why they are focused And they work at it good pecking the food Surely she loves to share her life with them Nothing will ever tear the birds from her They’ll live forever in her tender heart Even when she is gone and has passed on The birds will still look for her to come there

    I have wondered how long would it take birds to come if one just sat close to the feeders so that they could get a better look..Enjoyed reading this one today..Thanks for the visit..Sara

    ... the birds will still look her to come here << Have you ever watched Hashi?It's based off a true story and really shows the loyalty of dogs! This was similar in a way... showing off the loyalty of animals. And when a bond is formed it's practically unbreakable. Nice sentimental piece, Russell!

    Russell; This is so nice, that the birds can trust a human being. She too has a big heart. I use to have two love birds, but they died. Thanks for sharing...... Lucilla

    Nice poem, Russell. When she dies, they can erect a statue of her for those birdies!! Wouldn't it be cool if birds and other animals were showing the world who the GOOD people are by flocking around them!!

    So lovely Russell ...animals...even birds which I'm guilty of feeding too...sometimes are more faithful than some people and you sure captured it well...
