Swallows – June 25, 2014- Free Verse

Baby Swallows

swirling whirling through the sky
swalows play outside my window
through the houses
over the trees
joyous shrieks
on the breeze,
of a warm summer eve …
babes you were
a year ago
you left for warmth
leaving winter snow
now your return
makes my heart sing
as I watch you play and fly the evening by
swirling whirling through the sky
swalows play outside my window

Last year I took this photograph of a family of swallows – and misnamed it sparrows.  Anyway the family returned ithis spring, mated and now a new generation sits where last years chicks sat …it’s such a joy to see the continuaton of the cycle of life and hear their joyous chatter as thye play their games outside my window

  1. Your poem is so nice and the photo stunning! I can’t tell by the sounds of birds, but mornings I hear a concert sometimes and wish I could figure out the 3 different sounds but one is quite peircing.


in shadows light - walking under weeping pines - spring rain
