A Bird Told Me

poem by: Cecilia Crasto
Written on May 15, 2017

The sweetest words I ever heard 
Were told to me by a little bird.

As I sat beneath the silver birch
He came and landed on his perch.

He whispered softly in my ear
Little secrets I needed to hear.

My neighbor had stolen my garden gnome
And the golden peaches I'd lovingly grown.

She'd tried to lure my husband he said
But failed to tempt him into her bed.

Her husband was seen in another's arms
For he could not resist the lady's charms.

All these secrets I will hoard and treasure
And in return I'll give measure for measure!
