Lonely Bird

                                    

sits perched

on top of the pyramid

every day

she has no nest

no flock

no tune to sing

she flaps her wings

                                         one!

                                                two!

                                         three!

slumps back down

deflated

it will be time for her to leave soon

when other birds take flight

she will descend

down the pyramid steps

                                             one

                                                 by

                                                   one

to an empty playground
