April PAD Challenge: Personal Mythology Prompts Day Eighteen - The Story of Dog and Squirrel

Poem #18

The Blackbird and The Birdbath

"Why do you come
to splash with such fuss
at the birdbath each day
Mr Blackbird?" I asked.

"Why, to wash away the curse
that has turned my feathers black
as black as the darkest night!"
He replied.
