Poem: Blue Bird Madrigal

The snow is now gone
Stirring blue bird to wake
In the warmth of a new dawn

Tentative steps with a shake
Casting off the heaviness of sleep
Looking for what form day will take

Her babies in the nest weep
Announcing with shrill cry
Their hunger for insects from the deep

Blue bird will now fly
Into the clear sky

Spring cries out a throaty roar
Stir and sing blue bird it’s time to soar

Today’s experimental poem is an Italian Madrigal poem with the rhyming pattern aba bcb cdc dd ee. A work to celebrate the onset of spring in the northern hemisphere.
