I Hear the Birds

I love winter, but I also love the sound of the house when the heat goes off, appliances aren't humming....and I can hear when the birds first herald the coming of spring!



I hear the birds singing

It’s morning light they’re bringing

Across the sky through the blue to my window

I hear the birds

Phoebe calls again I hear her

From the line she is nearer

Last year’s nest is beckoning at my back door

Phoebe calls

Lonely dove cries its warning

Of heat to come after the morning

Later on she’ll coo again before the owl

Mourning dove

Daylight’s pulled in each direction

Like a piece of soft confection

Spring is sweet like the song

Of the bird as day grows long
