A Song, Seldom Heard


It is in the wind though seldom heard
The tree's love song to lure the bird

A reunion as if by unspoken vows
Is welcomed in the tree's full boughs
Cheery chirping greets the dawn
Nuzzling nestlings 'til they move on
'Til comes the day and east wind will blow
First frost, again the bird must go

It is in the wind though seldom heard
The tree's lament to mourn the bird

Cold in slumber, the tree at rest
Will shed some leaves to build a nest
Alone and strong the tree holds fast
Through endless nights and arctic blast
Years pass, the tree with love will grow
Remembering the bird, you know

It is in the wind though seldom heard
The song between a tree and bird
