A solitary magpie
Sitting on a pole
In joyful sadness
Of the sweetest tones I know
Pray tell, enchanting bird
What does your melancholy
Behold, from high above
I can see afar and wide
Make haste while all is well
I’m tired of being
A one-bird band
Come along, sing with me
Together we’ll sing
A joyful song!

you neither chirp nor tweet.
Your laughter is much like mine,
my cackle is much like thine.
We are two sister souls,
one clad in feathers,
the other in clothes.

The way you used oxymorons throughout your piece is great!
Thanks for dropping by and for your kind comment.
Thanks a lot, Doug.
La photo est magnifique ainsi que la poésie qui l’accompagne.
Bonne semaine Irina, bisous de coeur ♥
Merci de ton joli commentaire, Lucia. Bonne semaine a toi. Bisous ❤
I hope he finds a flock or band to hang around with soon.
I hope so too. Thanks for dropping by, Gigi.
Extraordinary description of perfect view with your poetry! Loved it!
Be Bettr, Stay Bettr! 🙂
Thank you, Swetank, for your lovely comment. 🙂
Thank you, for your comment on my post titled “Make the best of It”. It is appreciated!
Please allow me to say, you are beautiful inside and out, and for you to be 80 years young, I would have never guessed. 🙂 You should never feel you haven’t done as much as you could have, because I personally feel you are doing a great deal. You are writing lovely poetry, something I wish I could do. You take great pictures and you have your blog where you share all of the beautiful creations with myself and others. You are doing a lot! Of course you sit and look at pictures photography is your thing. I feel you have lived a wonder and full life and you shared what you love with others, that in itself speaks volumes. I appreciate every comment you send to me and I enjoy your blog as well. So, if you have other goals you feel the need to get started on, good for you, but please never feel like what you are doing is not valued, because it is. Take care and God Bless!
Thank you for the pep talk, I really needed it. I’m feeling much better today, back into the swing of things. The project I’m working on is my father’s story, his experiences in WWI and WWII. In the first he was a volunteer, in the second a POW in Germany. I’ve got lots of his personal documents and, luckily, there’s plenty of info on the Internet. Wish me luck!
I’m glad you like my blog. Have a great week! God bless!
Cheers 🙂 Irina
Best of luck with your project, sounds like you really have your work cut-out for you. 🙂 May you have a great rest of the week, filled with blessings.
Thank you very much, Cheryl! Cheers 🙂 Irina
Truly beautiful and I love the way the oxymorons show up here…
I truly liked this one, in particular: “A solitary magpie…Sitting on a pole… In joyful sadness”.
Joyful sadness is a great expression… I bet it is probably related to solitude! ⭐
Hugs & all the best to you, dear Irina, Aquileana 😀
I’m so glad you like it, dear Aquileana. This is one of the first poems I wrote in 2011, but for this challenge I worked 3 oxymorons into it : melancholy merriment (title), joyful sadness and one-bird band. And I like this new version much better.
Thanks for your lovely comment. Hugs 🙂 Irina
Thank you. Much appreciated.
I love this! Very neat how you worked those oxymorons in – somehow I’d imagined writing around one, rather than writing then including one. You’ve inspired me to think.
Thanks, Sheila. It’s so nice to know that I’ve inspired someone. 🙂 I bet you’ll find it easier than you think to include some oxymorons in your old work.
