Little Bird Lost

Copyright 2012 by DM Denton

O, singing bird—

why did you fly away

just when I was


the color

in your feathers

as well as

your song?





If I could lure my singing bird
From his own cozy nest
If I could catch my singing bird
I would warm him on my breast
For there’s none of them can sing so sweet
My singing bird as you.
