One for….

the lonesome magpie is I feel
the bird which mostly does reveal
more about myself it seems
oft appearing in my dreams
though not in sorrow like the rhyme
as he’s a joyous friend of mine
so I salute when he appears
not from the superstitious fears
which man in ancient times held fast
from ill omen-ed shadows he had cast
but out of my own happiness
that too my waking hours he blessed.
