A Carolina Wren and a Poem


When sad she brings the thunder
And her tears, they bring the rain.
When ill she feeds a poison
To us all to fell her pain.
Her smiles they bring the sunshine,
And the laughter and the wind,
And the birds they go on singing
And the world is whole again.
"Smile, sweet Sunday,"
Wednesday whispered in her ear.
"The birds need your love 
So they can lift their wings."

~Alethea Kontis~

  6. The bird is so cute! It reminds me of a baby chick.

    I like the poem too. It is fanciful but comforting to think Mother Nature's moods brings us rain and sunshine.

  10. Our wrens have begun singing loudly from the depths of the bushes - such a surprisingly loud noise for such a little chap.

  11. This is coincidental, Denise. Only this morning I saw a wren hunting for food on the patio. We don't see too many wrens these days. I love your picture and the poem is quite delightful.
