Springtime and Musical Birds

It’s very dry and the Lake is low.

It seems like May and I like it so.

My kayak is getting closer to shore.

Heat warms the house through an open door.


Birds arrive daily to perform a show.

Joyously they prepare nest and bough.

Mating and floating through water and air.

Chirp, honk, twitter: a sensory fair.


There’s something musical about all this.

Birds dance in the air with form and pitch.

Cackle, banter, hoot and shriek,

They coordinate wings, feet and beak.
