The song of the birds is calling us

out of our houses to come

and join what now is

the chirp-chirp-chirping

of the beautiful birds

drowning and drowning us

in their amazing song.

Counting the notes

as we were walking along.

It is never the end

of their song.

The bluebirds


and the cardinals
