one day out in a garden i discovered a wonderful secret!
a single plant with a surprising uniqueness!
under its leaf something stirred,
for under that plant was a bird!
i picked it up into my hand,
and saw it truly looked like part of the land,
from that day onward,
i have peeked in every garden, every orchard,
for little birds wearing plants,
for at first glance
these wonderful friends
look like little plant stems.
however precious these birdies may be
they simply have somewhere else to be,
all are up for adopt,
and go to places they will never be forgot
