Less Than Two Days

The sunlit wood along the hill with Nature's joy is ringing
Less than two days from the first of Spring the nesting birds are singing
The wallabies and roos in the paddock by the wood in the sunshine are grazing
And the weather for the time of year is really quite amazing,
The magpie and the grey shrike thrush their songs can't be mistaken
And of late every morning from my sleep to bird song i awaken
With nesting borders to defend the males for battle bristle
They warn males of their kind to keep clear with anger in their whistle
Though Spring is still two days away her spirit now is present
I do love this sort of a day not too warm but quite pleasant
The sparrow fly to her shed rafter nest in her beak a small feather
She and her mate they build their nest and brood their eggs and raise their young together,
Less than two days from the calendar Spring and the nesting birds are singing
And the sunlit wood along the hill with Nature's joy is ringing.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
