Mourning doves so called because,
Sound made people at a furmeral,
Thought I’d take time to share,
How sad is that?
Are there other other birds named justly?
Emmonating sounds without cheer,
My male sounds grumpy,
I would never change his cat name to grumpy,
We have red and yellow winged blackbirds,
Black capped snow birds,
Those are nice names,
There are scientific names,
Wonder what if we spoke bird they might call us,
If I could pick mine I’d want laugh-a-lot,
Because sometimes memories hold to much sadness,
Laughing allows me to hide.
