The Birder's Thanksgiving

National Poetry Month, Day 14

I wrote this one in response to the prompt "You are deeply loved by God", for a contest on Allpoetry.com. 

The Birder’s Thanksgiving



Chipping, White Throat, Fox and Vesper

Welcome Spring with sparrows’ nod.

Daffodils and Tulips whisper

You are deeply loved by God


When my loneliness reminds me

Of the wrong paths I have trod

He sends hummingbirds to find me:

I am deeply loved by God.


When my heart is sad and tired,

Robins call me from the sod

Morning birdsong frees the mired:

I am deeply loved by God.

White Throated Sparrow
Fox Sparrow
Vesper Sparrow
Ruby-throated Hummingbird
