Today I Heard A Bird Sing

Today I heard a bird sing.

Its voice carried notes
Of both struggle and strain
It sang its best
As it woke again

Today I heard a bird sing

Hungry mouths in the nest
All opened wide
Every daylight hour spent working
How that bird must be tired

Today I heard a bird sing

No vacations or weekend retreat
Each day a struggle, just to eat
But it sang anyway, through the twists and turns
It sang itís best, thankful for worms

Today I heard a bird sing

It had nothing in the bank
Nothing stored for a rainy day
And to the cat and the hawk it was prey
But it sang, it sang anyway

Today I heard a bird sing

Its flimsy house leaked and creaked
But had a great view
It had no roof
And the wind blew right through

So it sang
Thankful for feathers
Thankful for good weather

Today I heard a bird sing

Soon another answered, singing two
A rule of nature
Singers draw mates
And love songs flew

Today I heard a bird sing

So I began my own tune
I sang my best
Happy and full
Though there was still room
For more in my nest

Tomorrow mouths will be hungry
The work will be there
But thank God Iíve got wings
To take to the air

A nest I do have
It sometimes leaks too
But the thing about life
Itís got a great view

Today I heard a bird sing

And I joined with my voice
To sing or not
That's the real choice

The choice is not work
To gather in food
That must be done
To feed a hungry brood

The choice is more subtle
More sublime than that
Than whether to simply
Hang up your hat

For the birds of the air
Have nothing on you
Youíve got more to drink
Than the morning dew

So lift up your voice
Go ahead, make that choice
And let go a tune
Daybreaks a Ďcoming
Start singing soon

Behold the fowls of the air:
for they sow not, neither do they reap,
nor gather into barns;
yet your heavenly Father feedeth them.

Are ye not much better than they?
(Mat 6:26 KJV)
