Spring Is in the Air, But Don't Be a Birdbrain

Don’t mistake a starling
For your darling…
I’m really doubting that her singing’s that horrendous;
And don’t say she’s a smidgen
Like a pigeon…
Resultant injuries, I fear, would be tremendous.

To compare her to a swallow
Would ring hollow…
Cuz any hint how much she eats you’d better stanch;
But to picture her a dove –
Now THAT is love…
But just in case, you better get an olive branch.
