Heart-wrenching as any human story.
A female bluebird was hit by a car as she swooped low across the road, And the condition was soon fatal.
Her mate brought her food and attended her with love and compassion.
He brought her food again, but was shocked to find her dead.
He tried to move her – a rarely seen effort.
Aware his mate was dead and would never come back to him Again, he cried out with adoring love . . . And stood beside her with sadness and sorrow.
