Today’s my seventh birthday
A happy day in June.
There’s popcorn on the apple tree
And I sit in the sunshine
With my little bird.
He’s green with yellow feathers
and likes to peck the
"machine wash only" tag
while he massages my neck
with his tiny feet.
When I set him down
He always hops to the same darn corner
Of the red picnic table
and just waits for mom.
She holds her arm out- straight as a board
and he babysteps it- way up to her neck
to tickle her ears.
I feed and water him.
We love each other.
He’s a gift from my mom.

Very sweet!  I do love those birdie's. Can't live without mine! Those birdie kisses tickle so sweet and yes they do like those tags!

To Septsong,dsnyder,& Elizabeth Santos:  thank you for your kind words. This poem was written for my mother who unfortunately never got to read it. (She passed away about 6 years ago) Hopefully she would have enjoyed it.
best regards,
bboog
