Blue Jay


its beak, angular in shape
though small in formation
sings with a fervor
soft sounds
to the human ear
surrounded by feathers
blue on the back
white in the front
a tuft sticks out upon the head
leading to a tail
seemingly longer than the body
perched on a delicate branch
it continues to sing
until a rustle is heard
causing the blue jay
to fly away
