Chloe And Cricket

One reader shares her inspiring poems about the love for her birds.

By Christina J. Gallagher


At my age I didn't think
I could learn a new set of rules,
but I had a good teacher.

You taught me patience.
You taught me to love
sweet, winged creatures.

You brought me joy.
You gave me pride.
You were a dear companion.

Yellow bird, you held
a piece of my heart
in your tiny feet.


I will miss you, always.


I didn't think I would ever
want another bird,
but when I held you for the first time,
it was love at first sight.

You stole my heart,
then and there.
I am honored that
you chose me.

We will have
many good times together.
Come with me.
Teach me.
We will bring each other joy.
