Cuter than a chickadee, you have
Ample shares of character. You hop
Round my porch clutching a leaf that is
Old, withered, and bigger than you are.
Little wren, every happy hop
Is full of lively energy. Please
Never stop your cheery chirping that
Always brightens up my day with smiles.
Wiser birds I could find, but I would
Rather your tiny company to
Enjoy than that of less silly or
Nobler birds, my Carolina wren.
