Phoebe

~

unknown, she nudges

her way into Monday –

carved name in the covered bridge

~

Black-capped Chickadee pipes

fee -bee, hey-sweetie

(bored with chick-a-dee-dee-dee)

~

and Eastern Phoebe, rasps fee-bee

whee-zy, Phoe-bee

black bed-head, smuggie throat

~

unknown, Phoebe nudges

her way into Monday

  1. I was just singing chick-a-dee-dee-dee, making up a little song to myself while watching the chickadees. Lovely poem, Jane. 🙂

    • Hi Robin. The chickadees seem like different birds in spring, leaner (no feathers fluffed against the cold) and with different vocalisations! Jane
