Telephone wires are resting places for birds
Where the come and where they go
Where they rest before the snow
Before hazy days and misty rains
Because telephone wires are resting places for birds
Like hotels for birds
Like bus stops for birds
Through sunsets and sunrises, dusk through dawn
Because telephone wires are resting places for birds


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Well I'm only 12 and a lot of this was inspired by shel silverstein and this afternoon I was sitting on the pitch with my gramma and I noticed how pretty the birds were and some were sitting on the telephone wires BOOM inspiration

    observation is what makes a poet
    keep at it girl I started writing at thirteen and
    your poems are already much better than mine. (Report) Reply
