Nature Songs


A bobwhite starts off the morning
By repeating his singing tune
The old grouse hops up on a log
And beats his drums right in tune

A rooster pheasant cackles
out to all of his hens
Then the turkey gobbler
gobbles time and time again

An old fox squirrel
Squacks out a warning
For a deer is slowly moving
Through the woods this morning

Across the woods a dove mourns
As it calls for the rain to come
And in just a moment
The grouse will repeat its drum

The chipmunk starts his chatter
To let know all is going well
hopping from tree to log
steadily flipping his tail

The woodpecker pecks away
flying from tree to tree
always with a watchful eye
looking out for you or me

These are just some of the songs
That our nature magicaly sings
Songs brought to us by heaven
Inspired by our only King
