The Flicker's Secret

I saw a flicker,
Just today,
Perched upon a tree.
And on my word,
I do declare,
He was laughing at me.

He smiled,
As he shut his wings,
To hide his secret side.
I waited for him,
To give it away,
But he would not oblige.

I hit the window,
In my impatience,
And I believe I scared that fellow.
For up he flew,
And I beheld,
His wings decked out in yellow.

What is a flicker?

Romans 10:9  "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth thy Lord Jesus and believe in thy heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."

Jesus is our first, last and only hope.  Without Him we would be nothing.

A flicker is a bird native to north america.  It's true name is a yellow shafted flicker.  Those are the ones in PA.

Yellow-shafted flickers are only one kind of flicker. There are also red-shafted flickers.

To make it more simple, Kris777, a flicker is a relative of the woodpecker. They look very similar to the larger types of woodpeckers, and if you ever saw one, you'r first impression would be "Look, a woodpecker."

My poem is referring to the yellow-shafted flicker. When yellow-shafted flickers are perched, they look pretty normal. But when they fly, it reveals bright yellow on the underside of their wings and tail. It's quite pretty.
