At Last — A Poem

“Catbird Seat” — C.Birde, 5/19

 

Returned

– at last –

that sweet-voiced

family.

Descendants.,

all.

Clad in morning

coats and caps,

feathered gray.

Now,

I will put away

– at last –

winter’s bleak

attire,

remove my heart

from safeguarded

place,

return it

– at last –

to its nestspace

betwixt my ribs.

At last.

 

— C.Birde, 5/19

    • Thank you ❤️ We have been “patrons” to a family of Gray Catbirds for the past dozen years or more, and I so look forward to their return each spring! To have such connection to Nature — to be recognized by such lovely creatures — is a precious gift 🙂
