Learning the Verses of Bird Song

You carry your love song to me

Through the verses of the day’s bird song

As I learn to hear your sweet voice

I’m carried by you all day long

 

If flitting on some finespun fronds

Or balancing on highest limb

Your voice arrives in known refrain

Ethereal and graceful hymn

 

Ah, robin, wren or nightingale

At sunrise or sundown you greet

This concert strums my strings of heart

And calms me with enchanting tweets

 

Your harmony restores my soul

The gentle notes speak of your grace

This feathered melody lays soft

The tender fleece of your embrace.

 

My heart is full, my peace complete

In this life only partly known

But summon me and I will hear

The love song from your voice intoned

 

For the Lord your God is living among you.
He is a mighty savior.
He will take delight in you with gladness.
With his love, he will calm all your fears.
He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.

Zephaniah 3:17

 

Thanks to John Blasé at the beautiful due for the inspiration for this poem.
