    I do wish my life was also as simple
    Just like that bird on a side walk
    Having his lunch and moving on
    No time to wait for small talk.......

    Love the metaphor of the sky as a sea. I can only imagine why Emily felt this way. (Report) Reply

    I propose that we stop these comments. Have you noticed that all that people say on these stupid comments is how THEY feel towards the poem... I honestly don't care at all about what you think of the poem. Maybe if you told a cool fact about the author, I could actually be entertained. Like this: Throughout her life she developed a case of agoraphobia, being reluctant to leave her own property, and sometimes even her own room. Anyways, I propose that you all stop posting these stupid comments. THEY ARE POINTLESS. Stop them. Stop them now! (Report) Reply

    Every poem have its own different angles of observation and meaning to an ordinary reader. Here the poet observes the bird and its dfferent movements and finding of preys to eat. The world is so beautiful so that there are so many varieties of birds chirping in the trees of our homes, and walking, flying in different angles and sometimes takings its food by carefully catching the tiny insects to large ones to satisfy its apetite. The fruits are also interested by the birds and any poem pertaiining to birds are beautiful and this particular one is so much interested to read and understand. After all life is beautiful with observing the birds different sounds and actions which are the diplomats of nature with the human being I think. (Report) Reply
