A folded song bird.

A folded song bird.

October 10, 2013: Post first written: October 1, 2013: I noticed today the song birds have left on their migrations. I have not seen a humming bird in a couple of weeks, the gold finches are no longer at my feeder. I can spot flocks of black birds and starlings. In tribute to the colorful song birds that are traveling south, I have folded a little paper bird and made us a little poem to enjoy in their absence.

Origami song bird by Mary Champagne

A little paper bird for you and shared with love from me,
It was folded up one summer day under a graceful swaying tree,
It called to me from a longing of loveliness 
           and realized itself right here,
Its only purpose to bring thoughts on song birds, for you and me.
