A Lesson From The Birds

Poem By Mary Nagy

Lying in my hammock, I'm looking at the sky.
No matter what goes on down here, the birds go sailing by.
They don't pay me attention, for I am no concern.
I feel if I watch long enough, there's so much I could learn.

What is it that they're showing me that I have yet to see?
They fly and soar without a care, just happy to be free.
I guess I'm very lucky to be living as I do.
I have nothing that I yearn for and my bills arn't overdue.


I'll just lie here in my hammock on my front porch in the shade.
I'll thank the birds for showing me that I've really got it made! !

Comments about A Lesson From The Birds

A wonderful poem about the spirit of nature. Nothing could be more restful or pure. I loved this poem, Mary! Marilyn
a very beautiful piece of poetry, well penned.
A key to a stress-free life. Lovely. Susie.
You know Mary, once I was laying under a big oak tree listning to woodpeckers, going about their pecking. I could have sworn they were talking to me. Funny how mother nature's critters are not so simple after all................Dave
What else can I say? B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L! Just beautiful! ! !
