' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' Christmas Card(Being An Early Christmas Poem For Ruthie) - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

I don't
do this

you understand
but I am

staring at her

in particular
where her ample breasts

meet in a more than ample

Did not this
awesome architecture

of female flesh this
confluence of mammaries

just go

it is

for all to see
in a daring low-cut top

a robin redbreast
in her cleavage

making all who see it

A tiny broken

with an injured wing
(poor thing)

nestling between
her breasts

(well it is
Christmas after all) .

She feeds it
every hour

with a tiny

as it nestles

'Peep...peep! '
it pipes up

every so

Come Christmas
she gives it

the gift
of its


nothing but
blue skies

all day long
it returns

to its

as if it were
a living

Christmas card.

    How wonderful and thankyou so much! I have robins that come into my garden. They love to hop in and out of the Laurel bushes there...only a few mind.
    The starlings still nest in the eves of my tiny terraced house and there used to be one that only had one leg. It would drink the drips of water from my garden hose and I'd give it any bread or left overs. It wasn't at all scared of me, but sadly he/she doesn't come anymore. Probably in heaven's skies, I think.

    Ruthie: o) I hope your Christmas will be a happy one Donall with many, many more to come. xx
