…An old black crow, and a young bluebird sing lyrics of a different song. A free verse poetry and digital art to bring words and picture to life. Hope you enjoy and have a blessed day or night..
Have you seen the old black crow,
with his sleek, shiny feathers?
And how he weaves and bobs his head.
Loudly he squawks with an open beak.
I do not understand the rant—he spouts.
But there over on the branch of a
dying willow tree, stands perched,
a young, little bluebird singing so sweetly.
I can barely hear his song.
But his lyrics come through quite clearly,
over the slighted breeze.
And the words he sings, are a beautiful melody.
I lean my ear in closer; tears come to my eyes,
for the songs he sings, are of his love for life.
Somehow, I couldn’t hear the rantings
of the old bird any longer,
over the clarity of this bluebird’s love song.

What is Free Verse Poetry? …Free verse is an open form of poetry. It does not use consistent meter patterns, rhyme, or any other musical pattern. It thus tends to follow the rhythm of natural speech.
