Vocabulary Famished - starving
Sparrow - type of bird Personification Poetic Devices Love Song by Carol Muske-Dukes By Gillian Bulmer sat in my hand and spoke. Just because I’ve raised it by touch, doesn’t mean it follows. All day it pecks at the tin image of a faceless bird. It refuses to fly,
though I’ve opened the door. What
sends us to each other? He and I

had a blue landscape, a village street,
some poems, bread on a plate. Love
was a camera in a doorway, love was

a script, a tin bird. Love was faceless,
even when we’d memorized each other’s
lines. Love was hungry, love was faceless,

the sparrow sings, famished, in my hand.
