Feeding the Birds

Remembering a former time

Coming to town’s square at daybreak

Feeding songbirds from her basket

Proud lady sits by tiny lake

 

Visiting every morning

Arriving on schedule each day

Feeding waiting birds with her love

Quiet lady shoos away gray

 

Calling out to each bird with song

Smiling and offering her joy

Feeding grateful birds, rain or shine

Blessed lady warmly enjoys

 

Sharing her meager resources

Delighting her feathered treasures

Feeding hungry birds until noon

Gracious lady offers pleasures

 

Remembering time long ago

Sitting faithfully at her post

Feeding tiny birds again

Grown-up lass takes her place as host

 

This poem is inspired from a memorable scene in the film “Mary Poppins,” starring Julie Andrews.  Here is a video clip from the film.  Perhaps you remember it as well.
