A Minor Bird

KristinaMari No Comments

[Dickenson]

I have wished a bird would fly away,
and not sing by my house all day;

Have clapped my hands at him from the door,
when it seemed as if I could bear no more.

The fault partly must’ve been in me
The bird was not to blame for his key.

and of course there must be something wrong
in wanting to silence any song.
