By
   A beautiful call

Beckoning to me

A glorious sound

Honking words that seem so familiar



Going closer

The sound intensifying

That melodious sound

Singing human-like words to me alone



Before me

That harmonious creature

With its sweet sound

Still chanting its mysterious tune



Looking unto me

A look of innocence

Its adorable little face

Staring up at me with those big glaring eyes



Feathers ruffled

In its cute mustered way

Ruffled from a rough cleaning

Still, it all seems in place



A shock

An alarming look of shock

Surprising, unarming

Away, running away it goes



Flying up

Up into the clear blue sky

Up above me

Never to be seen again
