The Mother Bird
by Walter de la Mare

Through the green twilight of a hedge
I peered, with cheek on the cool leaves pressed,
And spied a bird upon a nest:
Two eyes she had beseeching me
Meekly and brave, and her brown breast
Throbb'd hot and quick above her heart;
And then she oped her dagger bill, -
'Twas not a chirp, as sparrows pipe
At break of day; 'twas not a trill,
As falters through the quiet even;

songless bird
by Bogdan Dragos

a songless bird

that would be the nicest
name she’d been

the others,
far more common,
that little wench

The Slick City Streets
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Recent rain has fallen on the slick city streets,
And redbird has suddenly abandoned the fast life!
Downtown still throbs with the city's heartbeats,
Like vast fields, in the time of red butterflies.

Varicolored and ever-changing, as untamed nature,
In its endless movement, charm, sights and sounds,
As sleek cars whiz past, carrying a hint of danger,
In a merry watery world, which vibrancy surrounds.

A Wonderful Bird Is The Pelican
by Dixon Lanier Merritt

A wonderful bird is the pelican
His bill can hold more than his belican
He can take in his beak
Food enough for a week
But I'm damned if I see how the helican

The Chandelier
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

moonlight was sparkling
on the crystal chandelier
through the tall window

the room softly glowed
as the breeze whispered romance
and the lovers danced

birds sang in the dark
as the distant stars twinkled

Kingfisher Days
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Soaring in orange
kingfisher blue in the sun
beyond red roses
Afternoon has come softly
smothered by the summer heat

Oblivious bird
making the most of each day
by still silver lakes
Trills dawn to sunset curtains

Butterfly Beats
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Autumn is golden
mirrored in still glinting lake
Sunbeams through plum trees
Nature's so long symphony
when birds soar in sympathy

Tiffany skies chills
pink robin is still singing
to an empty hall
Last beats of butterfly wings

A Sunshine Quest
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Sunrise golden hour was fading
Gemmed hummingbirds called on red blooms
Jade new day sparkled in wonder.

Songs from pine trees gushed cascading
the still air heavy with perfumes;
Unrecalled were days of thunder.

A lush garden, blooms invading
for hummingbirds in sweet costumes

Red Robin Serenade
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Red robin has long been singing, amidst a forest green spring,
In the burnt apricot days of sun, of teal skies fresh and clear,
Warbling to a blooming world unseen, hues coming and going.
Then red butterflies appear, like pale moon in plum mists sheer.

In the burnt apricot days of sun, of teal skies fresh and clear,
Satiny voiced red robin sings, while grazing the cream clouds.
Then red butterflies appear, like pale moon in plum mists sheer;
And all of nature's lovely crowds, are wrapt in dusky shrouds.

Scarlet Noon
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Deepest darkest reds
crimson guest in the roses
of the same rich hue.
Flowers and plumed cardinal
interact through scents and song.

Vivid green summer
showers gold on scarlet lane-
forever moments!
Bush concert at my window
