The Song of the Birds: A Life Outside My Door Poem
This morning I heard birds singing...
This is what I heard:
Their chirps were of melodious spirit, uplifting and exuberant;
Songs filled with gratitude and joy!
Grateful were the birds, for a brand new day!
Noticeably absent from their tunes were cries of despair;
No mourning or weeping.
Happy! Yes, happy were the birds!
Gleeful, giddy, and wonderful - those birds!
"Welcome!" "Rise and shine!" "Rejoice!"...
Their lyrics rang.
"Blessed!" "Loved!" Provided for are we!"...
Continually they sang!
The song of those birds made me pause;
I gave thought to what played.
And with a voice not so beautiful I too cried out, "Rejoice!"
"Indeed, this is a day that the Lord has made!"
