Birdy Birdy Birdy

A Minor Bird

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 must partly have 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

- Robert Frost

Loved that Robert Frost poem!!
Reminds me of when the Dad in Mary Poppins tells the singing birds to shut him a headace...let them sing I say.

As you can probably tell by the number of Frost poems I post, he is one of my favourite poets!!
