Woodpecker Outside My Window

A Poem By Clare Marie // 7/9/2010

**I'm not sure where exactly this came from....All I know is, my original source of inspiration was a family of woodpeckers that were roosting in a birch tree outside our cabin while we were on vacation in Canada.  What do you think?**


Rising up early
Greeting the sun
I step out into golden day
I don’t know why I look up and sigh
At the
Woodpecker outside my window
Falling down sobbing
Wiping my tears
I come back wearied, sore, and cold
I don’t know why I tremble and fly
With no
Woodpecker outside my window
Softer sun shining
Chasing the dark
Winter has turned into spring
I don’t know why I smile and cry
For the
Woodpecker outside my window
