Tell Them What You Know, Little Bird

Work Text:

There is a little birdhouse in my soul
And in its loving confines you'll discover
The beings who contribute to my whole
My friends and muses, allies, soulmates, lovers.

The blue canary brightens up my world
And turns the darkest days to to joy and gladness.
The raven holds me close, our bodies curled
Stays by my side through glory and through sadness.
The wisest owl entrances me with words
Such beauty in the metre of their phrases.
And at my back, the loyal hummingbirds
To ease my path through life's confounding mazes.

  And though these are the beings I adore
  Yet still there's always space for just one more.

(The bees, however, are strictly one per bonnet.)
