Dickie Sparrow goes “Dancing”

Dickie Sparrow goes “Dancing”

A Poem by Stella Armour
"

Dickie again....

"

 

 


 

 


 

 

 

Dickie Sparrow ruffled his feathers

at flirtatious Frankie Finch

after he caught his wife with him

flapping wings in a passionate clinch.

 

Frankie said they were dancing,

but Dickie knew he was telling lies.

“Just you leave my wife alone

or you may get a nasty surprise!”

 

Now Magpie who had been watching

flew off to tell Jim Cuckoo

and the pair went to see wise old Owl

to see what they should do.

 

“Don’t you know I am sleeping?”

he said, twisting his head right around,

“Once Frankie has had his naughty way

he’ll be after Ruby, I’ll be bound.”

 

When the pals told Dickie

he pulled a tail feather out.

Frankie must not “Dance” with Ruby

           of that there was no doubt.        

 

So Dickie took Ruby for a worm lunch

whilst Jim and Magpie hatched a plan,

they sent a message to Frankie

to go to Ruby’s nest as fast as he can.

 

Frankie was all excited,

he didn’t want Mrs Sparrow anymore

he flew straight away to Ruby’s tree

but got more than he bargained for.

 

Magpie had spread some silver foil,

then Jim had covered it in honey

Frankie’s feathers all stuck together

and, oh it was so funny.

 

Even Mrs Sparrow had a little twitter

and the old Owl hooted with glee.

“Would you like to Dance?” Dickie asked Ruby

and they flew to a far-away tree…..

Cocky Finch! Ah! so nice to see the friends all gathering together to teach him a lesson, still Dickie couldn't help but to act naughty at the end lol, I remember reading this before, and sure it's as enjoyable as the first time, I like so much the variety of Your stories, one can't know what next :)

Don't worry about editing, it didn't affect the essence of Your poem, I too have problems sometimes as You know, and there is differences between my laptop and tablet too.

Thank you, thank you for a real laugh... now a giggle, soon a long warm smile for the remainder of the day, Stella. Great meter, cute characters, a real twist in the last two stanzas! Needed that fun, dear you. :)

Glad Dickie brightened your day, and thank you for reading :)
I am quickly becoming a fan of Dickie Sparrow. Your work can be read to the young and are clever enough to be enjoyed by adults - quite the feat. *bowing and backing up slowly*
