Mississippi Mockingbird
by lynn gipson  
6/05/2012 / Poetry

Mississippi Mockingbird how you enthrall
Who are you reaching with all of your calls?
Sounding like all birds in the trees.
Are you trying to taunt, or merely to please?

Singing outside of my window so loudly
Beautiful feathered designs you show proudly
Sitting there chortling away your day
What are you really trying to say?

God gave you such mysterious talent
Awesome noises keep others off balance
No one knows what you're going to say next
Are you calling your mate or just sending a text?

When God created you, Mockingbird
What did he really want to be heard?
I guess that's only for your friends to know
You really know how to put on a show

Listening each morning to your repertoires
I recall Mockingbird songs and stories
"If that Mockingbird don't sing,"
Does not apply to your melodious ring

Chirping, whistling, tweeting away
God must have sent you to make my day
I listen for each of your amazing sounds
My heart waits gladly for another round.

Mississippi Mockingbird, please don't leave
You give such hope, you give me such peace
That God designed such a bird as you
Strengthens my faith and my spirit too.

God thank you so much for this wondrous bird
Peace and tranquility in my soul are stirred
Your stupendous creations of every kind
Sent to us always to keep you in mind.

I am a 61 year cancer survivor just recently become a writer. I write short stories, articles and poems of Christian or Spritual nature.
