The Early Bird



~~~

It is a sad little song

Warbled in the dawn

Insomniatic wren

He is at it again

~~~

He sings out so loud

Feathers preened and proud

He gives his very best

Asleep are all the rest

~~~

To whom does he sing

This aria given wing

What does he need to say

At the earliest of the day

~~~

Not heard by a mate

Sleeping in so late

But he goes on undeterred

Singing out his lonely words

~~~

Is it just for me

This morning symphony

What message is he sending

With my sleep he’s ending

~~~

I do not want to criticize

Could you not wait for sunrise

To throat your lovely song

As the others sing along

~~~

Or is this your scheme

To keep me from my dream

With all the noise you make

Forcing me awake

~~~

    I’m another lark and wish to be more of an owl at times, but I love the quiet peace of the day before the busy-ness of the day begins

  2. I too love that time of day, before dawn, all quiet, the house to myself… I used to have my energy at night, now it has changed to the morning… Beautifully written my friend!

    What a beautiful ditty, Brad. It was an accompaniment to the Wren’s song. Your verse is so in tune with nature.

    I love your humor, my dear! I love listening to the birds, but it is annoying when a singular bird is singing so early in the morning. I have a crow that likes to wake me often. I have no idea idea what he’s cawing on about, but he has something he wants me to hear! πŸ˜’

    I had to refollow you, nothing I did. This is happening a lot but I am trying to let go of issues on WP because there is nothing I can do.

    Your poem about the wren in beautiful indeed. The wren is one of the loudest and most avid singers. I love them and your poem describes the tiny birds so accurately. Blessings to you Brad. Jonikins πŸ€—
