Sing the Earth Delight

Every thing is in bloom and green and growing like weeds, especially the weeds, and the birds. I have been noticing the birds. One night sleeping with the window open, the birds were so rowdy at dawn that they woke me up. This poem, I wrote sitting on the porch of our off-the-grid cottage where I watched a scarlet tanager and saw the elusive indigo bunting. Don’t be too impressed at knowing their names. I had to look them up in the bird book. Enjoy the poem and enjoy your birds.

Sing the Earth Delight

Songbirds
make the trees sing
They light up branches
in colors of candy
Scarlet tanager, indigo bunting, goldfinch, oriole.
Birds sweetly go about the business
of making more birds
so the trees will always sing
and our hearts will chirp with delight.
I too must sing a tremolo
Repeating happy messages
Sending alive vibrations
for birdsong,
frog-song,
and my song
make the earth sing.
