At the blue birdhouse in the yard,
mother Chickadee’s on guard
atop a dragonfly chime.
Awaiting for opportune time—
She flies back and forth to her nest—
to her chicks, with food at its best.
And when the food is gone,
She gets ready for another run.
She takes another flight
She tries with all her might
Spreading her wingspan—
back to her nest, quickly as she can.
