the early bird

by Larry Jones

the robin pulled
a worm from the ground.

he ate half
then quietly stood
near the other half.

minutes later
another robin landed next to the first,
they looked at each other
perhaps they were mates?

soon the first robin flew away and
the second ate the rest of the worm.

then she too flew away.

sometimes the early bird
ain't that hungry.
