Poet's Notes about The Poem

One day a robin perched on my finger.
His feet reminded me of a wedding ring.

    I love birds with a passion, both wild and domesticated. I haven't studied birds scientifically. I'm no ornithologist, not even an informed bird watcher. I have a poet's perception of birds. For the past 40+ I have always had a canary, and cultivated a close rapport with that very tiny creature. TWEEL'S PARTING SONG at my Poetry Site is a homage to one of them. My present canary has brown/black feathers he's really striking. I named him TRISTRAM afterTristram Shandy, the 18th novel by Laurence Sterne, a unique, eccentric book and one of my favorites. Can you believe it? I took up all the space and cannot comment on the robin anymore. My canaries crowded him out! (Report) Reply

    If I am correct this is a great metaphor. The last lines lead me to believe so. My heartstrings are tethered to you beautiful wife. (Report) Reply
