While You Were Gone - a poem by greentea429
« on: October 17, 2012, 02:40:08 PM »
S4's thoughts, when S3 was away overnight getting treatment at the vet after being caught in fishing line. Oct 15 / 16, 2012.


While you were gone

There was a space I tried to fill,

But no matter how far I spread my wing

That space remained there still.

I thought that I could fill it

With some sticks moved to and fro,

But nothing made a difference

That space just would not go.

While you were gone

Most everything remained the same;

The lorikeets squawked, the currawongs called

Then the lorikeets squawked again.

And then a noisy creature came

And you were back with me,

And I realized that space could only be filled

By you, my buddy, S3.

- Sandra Burgess
