The Sounds of Nature

The shrill wake-up call of a rooster
Even before the crack of dawn.
The faint cawing of crows
To let the world know
It’s time to leave Slumber land.
The flapping of wings in unison
Before flying away early to catch a worm.
The desperate call of a baby squirrel
Lost somewhere and seeking its mother.

[Hata Bildir]
