Consolation He sits upon your window ledge his tail a darkish feathered wedge. His wings are folded in a prayer. He sits and sees you in your chair alone and sad and in despair. Soon he ventures closer, till his beak's against the window sill. It seems he feels you praying, so he bows his head. It seems as though this tiny bird can feel your sorrow. But that's not why he's here today; he's come to take your sad away so you don't have to feel so blue. His notes are bright, his tune is true. With this great gift he comforts you.
