A Poem

I hope you like this. It is an attempt at a none-rhyming more modern style.


I sat and ate on a park bench

sun and shadow dancing overhead

I was daydreaming as I chewed

when movement turned my gaze outward.

A passing blackbird caught my eye

as he pranced along an invisible path

his quick movements caused me to smile

A passing whim cause me to toss a crumb

I watched it jump back with a start

then leap forward with greed avidity

Several fragments followed the fist

As I passed a contented lunch

by giving some of it away
