Songbird

cardinal
 
Listen to the chirping
Of the robin having fun
Rising early in the day
To greet the morning sun
 
It sings of ages lost in time
Of voices left unheard
The songs ignored by all of us
By the beutiful songbird
 
Listen to the whistling
of the sparrow in the morn
It is through this that we can live
And how our mind can form
 
It sings of heroes time forgot
That ignorance has burned
The songs ignored by all of us
By the beautiful songbird
 
Listen to the squaking
Of the most obnoxious crow
realize they look down on us
For the hatred we bestow
 
It sings of blood shed time again
Like painfull ragweed burrs
The songs ignored by all of us
By the beautiful songbird
 
Listen to the canary chorus
To the beauty of its sound
Of deeds deed of caring people
Of the beauty it has found.
 
It sings of friendships meant to last
Beyond the single word
So often ignored by all of us
By the beautiful songbird.
 
So don’t ignore the songbird
It gives what we require
The beauty to shape our lives
Into that which we desire.
