FOREST MELODY


Tiny soft gray bird high in a tree

issuing songs like sun rays

Ringing chirps inspiring me.


A call of nature just meant for me

to see and hear of nature's ways

Tiny soft gray bird high in a tree


Rough brown bark of trees to see

caught in the fire of sunny rays

Ringing chirps inspiring me.


Green grass carpets, lush to see

Rainbows of flowers in nature's way

Tiny soft gray bird high in a tree


Soft sweet breezes whisper to me

as leaves rustle through the day

Ringing chirps inspiring me.


A brook composes a melody

while squirrels and chipmunks play

Tiny soft gray bird high in a tree

Ringing chirps inspiring me.
