Question

Once opon a winter, I looked up at the sky,

watched the snow come down, and the birds go by.

I zipped up my jacket, just to keep out chill,

pulled on my boots and started up the hill.

I looked past the houses, out towards the skyline,

And wondered who was staying at the inn that I called mine.

Were they all awake, playing and singing songs?

Or were they sleeping in, like they'd done all along?

well, they knew I'd be coming, right at sunrise,

they were all waiting, which was no suprise.

everyone knew why I had come,

and they were ready, every last one.

Some were polite, and waited their turn,

for although I was gentle, they knew I could be stern.

Others, however, decided to steal,

But somehow I managed to give all a meal.

Once opon a winter, I took on this task,

And I've continued, just so it would last.

And next year, before winter comes around,

I'll fix up this little place that I've found.

feeding rabbits?

I keep getting fleeting images of "Fly Away Home" in my head when i read this one. Could you be feeding stranded/abandoned/orphaned birds? Mebbe checking on hibernating bears in a cave you're fond of playing in? You're in the snow, going uphill, to check on your "inn" (a place to stay for a time/sleep), the inhabitants are expecting you.. you do this regularly.. baby birds still fit- not pigeons, but like ducks, or geese.. they squabble and most wait for their feed, but some sneak extra feed when you're not looking... Mebbe it's just going to feed horses in a barn? but horses don't hibernate.. elsewise, I don't understand the 'asleep like they usually are' line...

Well, that's what I have for now.. will think on it some more over the course of shiftwork...
