Birds of the Sky

I’m listening intently to the birds 
Outside my window as promised
For they seem to be talking birds
Intent on singing it out if pissed
Or chanting it out if challenged 
But the tune now has changed

I open the curtains ever so gently
And peep outside but see nothing
On the window sill or thereabouts
I peek over the neighbour’s wall
And still espy no telltale thing  
But the bird song now soars

Ha ha! It is that loquat tree again
That has given forth its juicy fruits
But as we could not get to the top
To pick the sweet yellowing fruits 
It has mysteriously beckoned
The birds of the sky to a feast!
