The Bird House This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

His skin was rough as bark,
And as I climbed through the coarse reaches
Of his lofty thoughts,
I placed a red, dangling package
Within his hollow chest,
As I moved to leave,
I ruffled a patch of his hair
And kissed his knotted brow,
Then climbed from his embrace,
Leaving him a gift
That would ensure others return.

Great job!

Thank you for your comment! This was one of the best poems I ever wrote, and I'm glad to hear that other people appreciate it. You know, to get better at writing, all you need to do is that. Write.
