I Know Of Some Birds - Poem by Francis Duggan

Since i do hear and see them every day
I know of some birds just a little one might say
And though my wonder of them only grow
Little of their ways in truth i can claim to know
The birds that are familiar to me
That in my walks i often hear and see
I cannot claim to know that much about
My knowledge on birds i have reason for to doubt
Everyday of Nature we learn something new
Her wonders many though her secrets are not few
And even the birds that every day we see and hear
Are not to us what to us they appear
Even the birds familiar to me i have come to realize
That so little i know about them this to me a surprise.
