Franny and the Bird

by Maple Tree   Nov 1, 2017

Franny, the old dog
perches herself to the tree,
consumed with arthritis
she guards her baby;

A bird in the nest grows
weary without her mother,
Franny guards her close,
the Birdy sleeps and the
dog blankets her heart.

    Love the title. I'd love to know the hidden story behind the metaphors. It seems a large story in a sweet little poem
