Unrequited Love

Hey! Have I got your attention?
Tap, tap. I just want to mention . . .

I see her almost everywhere,
It’s driving me to distraction!
One moment she is here, then there.
Can there be no satisfaction?

She is at the window of Unit one
Then, there she is at number two,
But wait is that her at thirtyeight?
I really don’t know what to do!

Our beaks meet through the window glass
Then as one we both look away.
If only she would accept my pass,
I would be happy if she’d stay

Too late! I know that I did try.
I limp beneath a bush . . . And die!

Footnote: the noisy miner was subsequently found dead in the garden.
