This work has reached the exceptional level
A trimeric on the birds I see and hear

Tweet and Twitter

by Chrissy710

The birds in trees just tweet and twitter
I sit and listen to their sound.
And through the branches watch them flitter
from tree to tree dance all around.

I sit and listen to their sound
while to each other they do chitter.
Their choral chorus does surround.

And through the branches watch them flitter
in flight their pretty feathers glitter,
if interrupted they will skitter.

From tree to tree dance all around
sometimes they'll swoop down to the ground,
A tasty morsel they have found.

Trimeric Treat contest entry

This is a Trimeric style.
A 13 line poem with optional rhyme
The first 4 lines of Stanza one sets up the poem as follows
5 = Line 2
8 = Line 3
11 = Line 4
There is no line length, meter or rhyme (Optionall) or limit

For my trimeric I have chose the following rhyme and syllable count
Stanza 1 a.b.a.b 9-8-9-8
Stanza two b.a.b 8-9-8
Stanza three b.b.b 9-9-9
Stanza four a.a.a 8.8.8

My Trimeric is based on listening and watching the many birds in the trees , who seem to tweet and twitter while going from branch tp branch or tree to tree and sometimes swooping to the ground .
What a delight to just sit and watch their antics
