A Mocking Bird Is Singing - Poem by Nellie Isabelle Steward Cooper

Oh mocking bird in the
dark cedar singing...

The day came on
And the day departed
You sing by the light
That has passed away...

In the dark of the cedar tree
Remember the day and the hour
That seemed forever
But passed

And one star shines for now
And one star now to wish upon

Keep singing, oh mocking bird
I am listening, ... I am listening
I am listening in my heart
