Ah Bluejay

Poem By Stanley Watson

Your scanning eye doth ever see
The stalker of the chickadee--
Ah bluejay, in beauty bright,
A watchman of the feeder be --
In raucous cry and clumsy flight,
You warn the little birds to flee
The awful plight that often comes
With stalking dog and stealthy cat--
You're not the villain you're said to be,
Of watchman of the chickadee --
Many grateful little birds
Have your warnings overheard --
The measure of your beauty be
The softest "chip" of chickadee.

Comments about Ah Bluejay

............a wonderful write...actually reminds me of the bluejay who swooped down several times to peck a cat, and try to frighten him away....bluejay's are quite brave ★

The Grandest Horse

If I were a rider with desert to cross,
I would seek the Grandest Horse,
To carry me through the roughest terrain--
The heat in the south, the freeze and the rain --

The Birth Of A Fawn

Rolling green, before me spread.
Entices me to look --
Just beyond the meadow --
Where a fawn is being born.
