One Day in The Life

One day in the life,
    a bird sings, hallowed;
    a tree branch condescends.

A cat sees all, tempted by melodies sung in three-quarter time-- 
    those of holy offices whose praise-adorations
    from branch to branch fly.

Perfect time, perfect prolation give credence
    as saints preserve the wings way home.

One day, one day, one day in the life.

Note:  In Medieval music, perfect time/perfect prolation was indicated by a

Circle = three-quarter time = Divine/Trinity. (an early time signature)
