The Woodpecker

Photobucket


Where do you suppose
The Woodpecker goes
Photobucket

When he carries those
Little crumbs away?
Photobucket

Across the lake, and
Across the land,
Photobucket

Clutching in his hand
A parcel of hay

Photobucket

For his little ones,
The Woodpecker runs.
For just a few crumbs,
Photobucket


He spends all the day
Flying to and fro,
Photobucket

But ne'er will I know
Just where he will go
Each time he flits away.

* I love my little woodpecker friend, though there have been Saturday and Sunday mornings where he decides to peck at my wall in the bedroom, waking me up at 6 am with his constant peck peck peck....but for the most part, I absolutely love watching him from my kitchen window. This tree is right outside and he works diligently all day long, pecking here and there.*

  6. Great captures - he's so cute! Nice poem too. Our woodpecker though just leaves it all to fall at the base of the tree.

  10. I love them but they are death to our pecan trees. When they peck a hole, it brings the sap which brings the bugs that lay the fungus in the trees & KILLS IT!! Whew! But I love them other wise, lol!
