National Poetry Day with the theme Work, which is something that we all do one way or another just about every day.
I think that this delightful poem is rather appropriate for here.
My Little Friend by Brian H. Gent
When I take out my rake and hoe,
My little friend just seems to know,
Some tasty morsels I’ll provide
As soon as I start work outside.
He watches me without a sound,
Perched on my spade stuck in the ground,
Small wonder that our spirits soar,
Such is our simple sweet rapport.
With red bib shining in the sun,
A special magic spell is spun,
We work together side by side,
From morning till the eventide.
No truer friendship could be stirred,
Than this between a man and bird.
