And I Like That - Poem by Bill Galvin

A cute little chickadee
Flits to my back deck here,
As I sit, quietly sipping a beer.
She pecks at tiny, seedy morsels I can’t even see;
At the same time, keeping her eye on me;
But she shows no fear,
And I like that.

From one potted plant to another,
She seeks her early evening snack;
She doesn’t ignore me… she’s careful…
But she shows no fear,
And I like that.

We can both coexist in this sphere,
I supply the flowers, plant the seeds;
Me with my beer;
And she with her daily needs.

Her chippa-chee-chee song tells me she’s relaxed;
She shows no fear of me,
And I like that…
It means we’re both free.

Anytime, little chickadee-bird, anytime.
