This Bird Has A Secret Pocket

This bird has a secret pocket.

You can open it and everything pours out

Like holy water, well, holy bread.

This bird prefers bread, bread with all

The best songs written on it in bird notation,

Songs about how the stars look like bread crumbs at night.

This bird has a hundred words for seeds,

Two hundred for insects,

But this is the only word

In Bird for bread:

Darling,

Darling,

Darling.

 


Allen Woodman's books include Saved by Mr. F. Scott Fitzgerald and The Cows Are Going To Paris.
