They’re Baack!

Three eggs in nest

The birds are tweeting past my window

Blackbirds, Juncos, robins, and wrens,

Their aerobatics are a sight to see

As the males pass muster for the hens.


The robins are laying their very first eggs

In nests made of brush and bits of grass

All wadded together with mud and muck

Plunked down like a sky-blue mash.


My un-favorites, those dratty blackbirds

Are nesting in the tall sprawly trees

They’re here every year with all their kin

I’m not about to ask them where they’ve been.


Gotta spruce up those hummingbird feeders

Get that homemade sweet nectar poured

These are the tiniest wee bitty birds

Can’t wait to see their shiny green horde.


The bright red cardinals do reign supreme

In their swelty, felty soft scarlet robes

“Pip, pip,” then a short pretty warble

Berry bushes are targets for nesting probes.


God bless the feathered families this spring

Good health and homes for you we pray

New life and pretty music for us to hear

We thank you for coming this fine day.

  2. Jeanne, this poem is wonderful! I’m glad to see I’m not the only one inspired by the bird parade. I saw a hummingbird rest on a blossomed branch today as I tidied up my kitchen.

    Blessings ~ Wendy
