Lesser Spotted

Buntings are finch-like birds with
unmusical but distinctive songs.

Pity to have
the name of a bird
and not to fly.
Poor thing should
flap its wings and soar
to the highest rooftop.

Yet small against clouds,
exposed to all eyes-
in the spread of sky;
it searches for a perch,
the one true note and
the company of trees!
