Bird song

Day has broken;

the silver shadows,

diaphanous in their haze,

make their way slowly,

streaked through with the palest shades

of the morning.

 

I have searched

far and wide for this,

a majestic maple,

from the top of which

I swell my breast with the sweet

breath of the morning.

 

Here I sit, who will hear this song of mine?

I sing for the morning,

weaving through the lingering night.

I sing for the promise of the day to come,

bringing light for growth.

I sing for all the world to hear.

 

I sing for you
