The Red Bird Lives - Poem by Carolyn Sears

A red bird lands to rest
Upon a tree branch.

The red bird chirps
For his sibling,

The cat takes notice, quietly
It watches his prey,

The cat figure it had his
Dinner..

Slowly the cat takes aim
And leaps for the red bird.

The red bird takes flight to
To join his sibling.

The cats loses,

But the red bird lives to chirp
Chirp another day..

The cat meow while his stomach
Growls,

The cat watches for another
Chance to feed his hungry
Stomach..

So, the cat meows hoping
For a meal,

To cure his empty stomach..
