Cedar Waxwing (A Kyrielle Poem)

.

.
Lovely what warm weather can bring,

New growth blooms in each tiny sprig,

Upon it a portent of spring,

Cedar Waxwing sits a twig.

.
Small grey bird wearing a mask,

Yellow pintails I really dig.

It completes its berry search task,

Cedar Waxwing sits a twig.

.
It’s a clever colorful bird.

Over water it’ll zag and zig.

It’s whistling sound can be heard,

Cedar Waxwing sits a twig.

.

Author Notes

A Lovely bird that eats fruits, berries, and insects. It chase insects over water just like a Starling. Always on the search for berries it can sit on a twig, or hover like a humming bird. Its song is more like a whistle.


I took this picture in downtown St. Paul in October 2012.
