birdie
hank

birdie was so named because she looked at birds
 1
she came to me on my chest
 2
and was running fast after another
 3
when my boot hit her in the side
 4
 
 
formerly she was poppy
 5
but couldn't be handled...properly
 6
we would walk or run in those mountains
 7
and she would long hold me there
 8
 
 
a girl that made herself comfortable
 9
a girl that made my love mad
 10
her homing instinct was strong enough
 11
to kill her on the way back to me
 12

it's about a dog, unknown. try a little reading. that often helps when you're dealing with words.

I still don't get it.

i'm sorry everyone has overlooked the obvious.

this is definately an underrated poem.

Why is your first line so long winded?  Wouldn't 'birdie loved birds' do?  Your second line is never going to be gettable. It makes no sense even if she was dumped on your chest inside a cardboard box tied with a ribbon and with ample breathing holes.

The rest of the stuff I quite like.
 — unknown
