Sweet Melody

On the evening breeze
the sweet melody of birds
is the only sound I hear,
music without words.

They sing the setting sun
to its nightly rest
and bid adieu to day
as they settle in their nest.

Like an orchestra they play,
different notes from each one.
I'm surrounded by their melody
as I watch the setting sun.

On the evening breeze
the sweet melody of birds,
filling my soul with joy,
music without words.

    how delightful: "music without words" I enjoy this song too. It's just a bit annoying when I hear it early and am still trying to sleep! but how lovely that sound is that you have chosen.

    They inspired Johann Strauss the Younger to write his waltz "Tales From the Vienna Wood". Good write as usual, Francine.
