Catbird

You happily follow us
As we explore the yard.
You are never far away.
Never perched for long.
Watching us.
Then singing your song.
Always present.
Never gone.
Some say you are nosy.
Waiting in the bush
For juicy gossip,
I, for one, don't buy it
Your a guardian,
I know.
Watching over us.
Guiding us.
Calling in the reinforcements.
Adding humor to our day.
Thank you for choosing us
To build your home near.
To raise your young
And raise us up.
As your presence
Does.
Oh guardian, forever seerer,
Watch us as we play.
Catbird you hold a special place
In our hearts.
We pray you come back some day.
