Bird song

It is still dark outside

But the robins are chirping 

And telling us about the imminent arrival of the dawn

Why do birds sing in the dark?

What are they so enthusiastic about?

Do they know a new day is coming? 

Is that their message to us?

Our world is approaching another dawn

But it may not seem like that now

It’s cold and there is no evidence 

Of the garden that is blooming

But if we listen we can hear the sparrows singing 

And the blackbirds assuring us of the coming of the dawn
