MURMURATION

I was a lone lark
Wondering how the sun set
I always got a flack
From mickey I took from garnet

Then came along a beautiful bird
Sweet Samantha is the savvy sparrow
Fantastic prowessed poetic Byrd
That sings into the heart of tomorrow

We quickly clicked, we became besties
Together we wove our words wonderfully
Laughed with glee as we ate blue berries
I thought we’d be together till eternity

But when the murmuration of swans
Came as the summer ended without warning
She fluffed her feathers, gave a last dance
She flew with the flock, leaving me mourning
