A bird in the bush
Worth more than two in the bush —
Camera in hand.

Foraging in bush.

Lesser goldfinch
in the canyon
reflecting
little gold flecks 
lighting up
the mesquite tree.

My words are wings
again I encounter thee
with your breast of gold
in my dreams
lighting up
my lemon tree.

Lesser Goldfinch — Oh Little Bird   2 comments

Oh Little Bird

Oh little bird with head atilt,
In safety drinking as thou wilt
From out the wayside found;
Unmindful of the noisy crowd profane,
What fears thy wings surmount!

 Oh blithesome, eager little bird,
With reverent head turned heavenward,
I feel thy silent thanks!
The charm within the voice of men,
The potency of gift of pen,
Thy gratitude outranks.

So would I find some wayside pool,
Some sheltered spot with water cool
From which no more to shrink.
Oh little bird with head atilt,
Would I had wings to soar ‘bove guilt
And share thy tranquil drink!
