the most beautiful thing I saw today
a blackbird with the orangest of beaks
having a splashing good time
in a plastic container of water
how refreshing, sparrow looked on in awe
as blackbird dipped his head in the water
laid before him, once, twice, thrice
he flapped his wings so boldly
dispersing millions of droplets
all around bird song grew louder
as if to say
blackbird you handsome beaut!
continue cleaning your feathers
you're so darn cute!
so dutiful, so beautiful
blackbird you are, da one!
