Crapsey Cinquain about Sora

I’ve been trying to write a poem for a PEI submission which calls for a 5 line poem and a PEI theme. Not enough people know what a sora is to make this fit the “bill” [bird pun] well enough, so I’ll post it here. And I also am not sure if the plural of “sora” takes an “s” or no… It’s a Crapsey Cinquain (the form, not the bird).

Soras hide like mice with bagpipes …
