Lessons of a Birdsong

When I was a child
You’d hear a bird song
Your Spirit would brighten
And you’d sing along

A beautiful chorus
As they’d sing back to you
You taught me to pause
And cherish it too

Throughout my life
I’ve treasured this gift
To pause and listen
My Spirit to lift

A sprinkling of joy
Wherever I go
With lyrics of love
You’re with me I know


Opening the window
An unexpected treat
A symphony of sound
One of birdsong sweet

Notes of high and low
Echo in the air
Chittering and chatter
A gift of morning shared

Each a song unique
A beauty that they send
Shared with gift of tongue
Their word can’t comprehend

A practice here this day
As mind gives up control
A new way to receive
To listen with the soul
