Rain Bird




The sky came falling down
Pitter patter, pitter patter
In a minute was on the ground
Thud and woosh!
When I saw a bird
With wrapped wings
Fighting to unfold
 I asked her
What is scaring her the most? 
 In the wrath of this weather
The lightening, the thunder
 The rain or the cold
Losing her way
Or her nest
Or thy self
She looked at me
And dropped a tear
Lifting her every feather up
She flew away saying
Losing a loved one
In this time of test
Is all that is to fear
