Make A Joyful Noise - Poem by James Casey

Make a Joyful Noise

I walked outside and there they stood
Birds of a feather joyfully singing in the woods
They were untouched by the cold, cold weather
With a sense of bonding they sang together

Together those birds sang cheerfully
To me they all seemed so carefree
Ice was hanging from limb to limb
And I quietly marveled at them

Blue Jays - sparrows - birds unknown
With me listening, cold to the bone
Their music gladdened my once lonely heart
Songs that held me fast unable to depart

Where they got their pep God only knows
It sent a warming chill down to my toes
Out of a day filled with such drabness
I admired the spectacle of this chorus

If birds can sing during the winter cold
Giving me a lovely site, indeed to behold
With diverse colors and mingling sounds
Dear Lord, why should I ever feel down?

Jim 1977

Poet's Notes about The Poem

While walking to my tree stand I observed these birds singing, they held no fear of me and completely ignored my existence, They seemed to know that I was not going to harm them
