Birds of Spring


Birds of spring they
bring on so many things
sounds they send
to each other,

that only they
can understand
in their sweet
cheerful harmony.

Sweet smell in
the air this
beautiful april day
listening to these creatures.

Taking in the warmth
of the sun that
is so overdue, blue
skies beauty to the eye.

Birds in flight
from one tree
to the other, getting
ready to produce life.

Cool breezes this
day so fine to hear
birds of spring echoing
music to my ear.

Birds of spring
to many to mention you all,
Robbins, Wrens and Cardinals
or a few I see, oh so beautiful.

To hear their chirping
wondering what they're saying
at this moment
will sit here for awhile.

Sounds this day
so relaxing is it
to listen to these
birds of spring.

    Jim, I could hear all the calls as I read through the lines. A musical crescendo at dawn on a spring day. Beautiful. Top marks from me. Thanks for sharing it my friend.

    Birds sing to their Maker whatever the weather. Their songs are an inspiration to us all.
    Praise for your song to spring as well.

    Warm regards,

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
