A little bird

Written by: Donald J Bennett

A noisy little bird was singing his song
Outside my window; early morning light

Maybe he was singing his song to attract a mate
Or simply singing his song to express his delight

He sang so sweetly; he sang so loud; sang so long
I would have enjoy it more; if sung in the bright sunlight

I might even have sung along; if only I could carry a tune
Or if I had gotten a bit more sleep last night
