Twinkle,twinkle,driving into Independence,Iowa,

Past a yard,

Fifty if not a million,

Shifting from side to side,


Winters birds,

Saw one crow,

Most yards no birds,

No cows,

Or horses neigh a field,

Just one yard,

Not a spot to stir,

Flutter, flutter,

Hungry winter Iowan’s birds,

A plenty,


Little bird,

Cause a poet to thunk,

Of a poem my mothers’s favorite,

The verse played merrily within my heart,

I breathe out of habit,

I miss you so my Dear friend & best mom.

  1. Ahh good poem.
    Usually birds that flock together in areas like that migrating to a warmer place. They stop to rest and feed. I remember seeing a lot when I was there. I think I ran out of bird seed quick from feeding them.
    It was so cool to watch them.
