A-Z sketches in verse: Wary Warbler

A wary warbler, I’ve been known
To sing in solitude.
No, I’m not tone deaf. Hold the phone.
I don’t mean to be rude.

It’s just that I prefer to croon
Away from open ears.
I learn the lyrics, belt a tune –
No need for cheers or jeers.

My favorite solos I have sung
While piloting my car.
I’ve let ‘er rip, busted a lung,
On road trips flung afar.

My music is a secret still.
Don’t try to catch my song.
I’ll chirp and chant and hum and trill
With none to sing along.

  1. Of course I want to say something brilliant about your poem, but I'm so tired from the A to Z stuff. It reminds me of Shel Silverstein's' playful poetry. Seriously, you did 10 blogs in last year's A to Z and are doing 5 this year? What? Are you hooked up to your computer at the waist? LOL!
    You're doing great w/ the A to Z Challenge.
