“The Dawn Chorus”

How sweet the sounds of

the Dawn Chorus

4am and the Birds all wake

I stand and listen

to Nature’s “good morning”

yet I have yet

to place my head

on my pillow and sleep


The light of the morn

shows through my window

should I stay up

or should I sleep

I listen to the Birds

sweetly calling

“has she fed us or is she asleep”


Without Nature

our lives so empty

the Moon at night I watch

from my window

then morning comes in

such sweetness out there


We cope each day

as best that we can

the Sky still above us

the Sea such a mystery

the earth, well with Irish blood

running through me

the soil do I love


Nature surrounds us

we should protect

generations together

now there are those

who will destruct

without Nature we are nothing

don’t let’s ever forget

  1. We feed the birds in our yard, too. We have lots of Mourning Doves. I love to lie in bed and listen to their cooing in the early morning. I suppose now that we have central air and the windows won’t be open I won’t be hearing them. It makes me sad.
