High Chirping






Ah, speckled bird with lilting song —

Thin notes that blend in quiet morn —

You yield in rain to longing born

In sky, to brilliant rippled course belong,

Far from the dusty earth forlorn.

    I don’t think I have ever seen the wordle words written in the given order before. This needs much applause especially as the word count is small too. Not only that but the poem makes sense. Full marks I think!

      Thanks! It is my personal challenge to do it this way every week. Often the sense suffers, but for last week I think I got it particularly right. This week’s one didn’t turn out too badly, also.
