His call is clear
a chip followed
by another chip
then another
moving as in a
constant motion —
chip, chip.

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!

The challenge will not wait.
Life does not look back.
A week is more than enough time for us 
to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.
