In Australia, we have the Superb Fairy-Wren.

With a flower in her hand, She strolled on by, Smiling at a wren, Who asked her why? Her world slipping fast, Still, she stopped to reply, "Come here a little closer" So no one else could hear. "I have lost my family, And all that I hold dear." So he pondered for a moment, Then flew off in fear. She thought that was rude of him, Then gave it no second thought, While approaching a willow grove, She thought she saw him fly by. As she entered through the trees, Her eyes flew open wide, There he was with a hundred more, To welcome her to their sky.

Very multi-layered tale, Rick. Superb depth of thought in this poem. Open ended conclusion. Your way of giving the reader freedom to choose the meaning behind it all. Excellent poem, WW. Love and best wishes to you.
