I Love The Tuesday Birds
By Billie Daddario
Tuesday birds the ones
by the lake where I walk the dog.
Tuesday birds sing the most beautiful songs
They sing with the most variety,
because Tuesday birds are the most varied
they sing with chortles and shrills and caws.
They call to their kind (I wonder if the geese can understand the swallows)
They are also the most beautiful.
There are geese of course,
And swallows, crows, hawks, and sometimes an eagle
There are also water birds like the king rail and the white ibis
All singing a concert of no concern on a Tuesday morning.
