Sample Poem

Meeting for a Drink     (Florette)

While sitting near my fountain dear,
a pretty yellow finch appeared.
When he came by to say hello
it thrilled me much to simply know I wasn't feared.

He looked at me and seemed quite wise,
as seeing me was no surprise;
he groomed his feathers, and seemed to think,
then bowed to me and took a drink, just us two guys.
