Watching the Birds

orioleOriole
Chatter chatter chatter
they excitedly flit
from leaf to leaf
Bright black and yellow
on leaves they sit

doveDove
Cooing softly
with gentle flutter
from branch to fence to ground
With flashes of white
like silvery butter

Swallow
High trills
So powerful from a small
stationary soldier,
little ball of spotted grey fluff,
The tiny bird with a rooster’s calls
