The Song I Heard

I heard the chirp, chirp, chirp ring throughout the street

I wondered what marvel could make music that much sweet

As I stopped to take it in

My eye caught you warble the song you sing

I spotted the vocalist.

 

 

And the song I heard

Was too delightful for words

It talked of spring and life and new starts

That does good to one’s heart

The happy vocalist’s close-up as he chirped.

 

I could put words to music

But not music to words

I wished to somehow capture

The song I heard

 

For the song I heard

Was sunlight in a cloudy day

Brought a smile to one’s face

And cheer in the gray

 

You flitted to the rail

And ushered in your symphony

To prepare for the finale

 

For though you sang of spring

The snow was coming

At length you flew off the rail

And left me with the song I heard

The poor lonely rail after the vocalist left it.
