Little Bird

-Linda Lee Lyberg

I pay homage to you little bird
Although I know not why

You had to leave this earth today
When I saw you this morn
I knew death was near
I felt it’s cold hand crawling
Your feathers, once so brilliant green
In the hot sunlight
Now fading and ruffled, worn
You shivered as if you were cold
Your eyes, no longer bright and curious
Now fading in the caustic light
Of your magnificent release
I heard your chirping soul
Fading away
In the wind whispering
Good-bye
