National Poetry Day 2016: Canary Song

Today is National Poetry Day, so here is a poem dedicated to my canary L’uccello, who has the sweetest song.

L’ucello

Yellow bird, so soft and round,

Never known to cause a frown,

How tall he sits, when he does sing,

Brings Joy and light to everything.

 

A bird so small and yet so bold

Never one to make you scold,

He loves to fly, to perch, to sing,

Brings joy and light to everything.

 

My darling Bird, your song so pure,

An angel’s voice, I am sure,

Come sit a while and hear his song,

And in your heart, he does belong.

 

Such joyous notes, brings tears to eyes,

Pure pleasure at his warbling cries,

Of such delight and without measure,

This darling bird, he brings such pleasure.

 

Here is a video of L’ucello singing, for those wondering about his name, its Italian for Bird.

Best wishes and thanks for reading, will you be joining in with National Poetry Day 2016? I’m hoping Writers Digest will post another Poem a Day Challenge in November like they did last year. I don’t try to post to a schedule with the prompts but I like to save them for when inspirations strikes.

 

Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon
