Mocking the Birds

The mockingbird sings, Emulating rings, Confusing all nearby birds. He keeps me awake; Won’t step on the brake. So glad he cannot speak words. For what I utter Might cause a flutter Among other choristers. “Please choose one,” I smile, “And do not compile The sweet tunes of your sisters”

    very cutely done, Carolyn. As I was researching the sky lark, I came upon the fact that they too are similar to mocking birds, the way they copy their singing.

    This is a sweet write, Carolyn! :) My brother gets so unnerved by those early morning birds. Poor man...he is a hopeless insomniac and those birds drive him over the bend. You've made them sweet...though..I'd LOVE to hear your choice words, my dear. Hugs
