8 April

The Empty Feeder

O Birds!

Where have you gone?
Why have you abandoned me?

It has been a week since I
Filled the seed to overflowing and
Hung the dome-topped cage and
Returned to my kitchen window
To wait for you,
To wait for the empty feeder.

But not like this!

Great! Reminds me of those great William Carlos Williams' poems that were so observational and conversational.
