Poetry

Birds

by Sophia B., Age 13 , Grade 7, Easton, MD USA
Teacher: Mrs.Stinson

Happiness is a sly thing

A mischievous imp, at that

It sings to you like royalty

As if you are the only one deserving

Then swoops away with the song

Absent

Lingering no more

 

Now, Sadness is a tricky thing

Much like its impish twin

But the mellifluous trills

Are replaced by jagged screeches

with sounds as sharp as knives

Pestering all day

Then leaving

Without a second thought

 

Like day and night

Ying and Yang

They swoop around

Causing joy and misery

Toying with emotions

Without a care

 

I’ve seen them do it before

The sly little things

They come and go as they please

With no worry nor concern

But I hope one day

Sometime very soon

We will get those little birds
