Mockingbird, oh Mockingbird

November 18, 2017

PROMPT: Birdsong

4
Sprightly twills through willows spill
Music floating on the wind

From whence comes such fluted love
Bright snaps fly around the bend

Glad whistles speak epistles 
Of silver bells and laughter 

Dancing as the bird flits past
'Til the new song thereafter

Mockingbird, oh Mockingbird
Abandons his melody

Mimicking a child's scream
That makes the peaceful air flee

Such eerie, haunting creaking 
Like that of an open door 

He has heard in evening stirred
By ghostly, phantasmal score 

Mockingbird,oh Mockingbird 
Let not your voice spawn shrieks 

Nightmares and other scares
Of which clouded darkness seeks 

Bring instead not cries of death
But trilling, gleeful sing-song

Harmonies woven with breeze 
That whisks the sweet notes along

Whisper not of nasty thoughts 
Bring music as such birds ought

    Great job with this! :D I've never heard a mockingbird before, but they're easy to hear by your descriptions. ;)
    Keep up the fantastic work!
