Chickadee Chorus

Look over here, I am a sweet little chickadee I am perched on a branch singing my melody A playful sweet chorus of chick a dee, dee, dee My songs are cheerfully happy as I am fancy free My flock starts to gather round and wait for feed Oh, please fill the feeders with black sunflower seeds We eat and rejoice, chirping with flying wings of speed Thank you for your kindness and fulfilling our needs Here comes a squirrel, the worst seed thief of all I dive-bomb the feeders, he just looks, oh what gall He likes to sit and stuff his cheeks, he has a ball Here come some blue jays, they like to brawl A flash of gray now runs by me up the tree The Blue jays are now squawking for all to flee Alas, they are all gone and now it’s just me Singing, chick a dee, dee, dee as happy as can be

Thank you Jan, that's a shame you don't have them in the UK, they are fun and feisty creatures! :)

This is a true treasure, Tania! -- and very educational for me, the stuff about squirrels and blue jays. Would never have known... Sing on, Chick! Magical Melodies, Gershon

Thank you Gershon, my inspiration for this poem was when one morning while out with my dog near the bird feeders, chickadees were zipping by me, fearless funny birds!

What a cute poem. I could fly to you on that tree. Great personification and perfect imagery. ~~

Lovely Tania, I loved to feed the birds and I did, but have moved now and there’s no place to do it. “Birdsong is the music gifted to man, feed the birds whenever you can.” ~ Belle
