the brave girl called barn swallow

a bird is small,
but it is very much like a mobile
its movements amazes

when winter comes
wild geese glide in v shape
they land in waters to pass night

white snow floats
the field is covered by a blanket of  soft salt
teepee Pine tree grins in Chritmas glow

spring is in the air
when people around the world say "Happy New Year",
that's when a swallow sings to your ear

a girl is brave
when she is inspired to get out of a bee cave
and draw her foot prints with swallow tail

I really don't understand this, if I am honest.
Also am curious about why you spell the city you CLAIM you live in incorrectly.
Something doesn't ring true.

I like comparing a bird to a mobile instead of the other way around. Maybe your little girl is a baby in a crib under a mobile ....
