At My Feet – A Poem by Sylvia

at my feet

in a postage stamp yard
behind a small bungalow
i have the world at my feet
“my world”…
of speckled starlings and common house sparrows…
Carolina wrens and cardinals…
chipmunks who scurry about
beneath the fern fronds and boxwood…
and families of gray squirrels
who travel the branching highways
of the mighty oaks…

this is my world
among my animal friends
who come to me
like I’m Snow White…
and I to them
like they’re nature’s counselors…

and they are…
gathering at their feeders
and eating peanuts
at my feet
