Listen

They come to sit on branch and sing

By multicolored feathered wing

And ’tis more than song they bring

They are to wounded soul a sling.

 

It is for those who take the time

To pause and listen to the rime

Of something more than just sublime

And let it settle on the mind

 

To find there is within a life

A counterbalance to the strife

Unlike the march to drum and fife

That is in waking soul so rife.

 

So hearken when the song appears

Within the mind beyond the ears

For it can ease the doubts and fears

While adding moments to the years.
