As The Children Play

As The Children play
The morning comes awake
The sun comes peering through the mist
As I sit and watch the Daybreak
I hear the call of a sleepy duck
As he waddles up to me
Two ravens fly above my head
Their Lonesome calls enchant me

There’s a feeling deep within my soul
As I watch the river flowing
The mood in me spells harmony
And gets my heart to glowing
As the silent echo’s of the truth
They fill the morning air
The breath of mystic morning comes
To leave my soul quite bare

The Kookaburra’s crazy laugh
Does break on through the morn
More waddling duck’s they do arrive
To laze upon the lawn
Then as the day it comes alive
With the twitter of wild birds
These tiny little Fairy wrens
They get my heart real stirred

G'day Peter … its the birds that give us so much delight. Of course we all have our favourites and for different reasons. A morning is bare without birdsong - I trust Christmas wasn't too hot for you - Lindsay

Ahh!! The birds add to an environment's diversity. I have filled the feeders so they will visit my yard and I can enjoy seeing them. Thanks for the visit to my page. Sara
