In Which I Enjoy My Easily Amused Birdie Brain

American Tree Sparrows like to hang
Around the cheap tube feeder just outside
My window, and they, too, like to harangue
Me when the feeder's empty, though they hide
When I come out to fill it. Once a day
At least, I find they've eaten all, or spilled
The seed I've  poured inside it. I obey
Their shrill demands, because I'm really thrilled
To watch them so cavort where I can see
Them at their birdie doings all day long.
I know the show they put on's not for me
Expressly, but I ask you, what is wrong
With staring out my window, oh, for hours?
When spring comes then I'll also watch the flow'rs.
