Black Cap

A jaunty hat
Wears the Black Cap
A sprightly fellow
So full of life
Hopping along so smartly
Singing a song
So simple and clear
He is the Chickadee dee dee dee

White Throated Sparrow

Listen closely in the Spring
and summer in woodland areas
you will hear the White Throated Sparrow's call
"Sweet Canada Canada Canada"

The Cleaner

Above all that is life
Soars the Cleaner
Silent, nary a wing beat
Quietly removing
The blemishes on our perfect world
Natures custodian
a sanitized nature, so perfect to the eye 
How false we are
To expect the same in our human existence
Our Cleaner just might smite us all
