Chirp, Chirp!

by Radko Vacek

Age Group: Adult



Some poets can write verses half divine.
See? Now just read mine! Sweating word by word,
Line by line, I write. Well yes, they are mine,
Right from my heart, like the chirp of a bird,
No skylark, no wood thrush, just a sparrow
As common and plain as can be. Okay.
I'll keep chirping without all the ego.
The good sparrow makes good of every day.

I wonder what genius is about.
Fate has kept it out of my ken alright.
What shall I do? Try the hopeless? Cry? Pout?
Why, not one ostrich ever thinks of flight!
So I won't curse Fate, nor will I get mad.
One cannot miss the things one never had.




Author's Notes: To the Skylark

Ethereal minstrel! pilgrim of the sky!
Dost thou despise the earth where cares abound?
Or while the wings aspire, are heart and eye
Both with thy nest upon the dewy ground?
Thy nest which thou canst drop into at will,
Those quivering wings composed, that music still!

To the last point of vision, and beyond
Mount, daring warbler! - that love-prompted strain
- 'Twixt thee and thine a never-failing bond -
Thrills not the less the bosom of the plain:
Yet might'st thou seem, proud privilege! to sing
All independent of the leafy Spring.

Leave to the nightingale her shady wood;
A privacy of glorious light is thine,
Whence thou dost pour upon the world a flood
Of harmony, with instinct more divine;
Type of the wise, who soar, but never roam -
True to the kindred points of Heaven and Home!

W. Wordsworth
