Lovely. Just lovely! It's amazing that you accept such rowdy neighbours at that time of the day. Let alone write such an endearing haiku about them.

Hi Jan, Wonderful! Loved the chirruping! Loved your poem and the music. I loved Scotland. What a fantastic country. When I was visiting there I never did find any of my family members but I had an unforgettable time. Thanks for bringing me back there in memory. Take care, Earl

Hi Jan, You set the mood for this beautiful monday morning with this Gaelic song I know. Thank you. I suppose now the song will stay with me on my plumbing job. Your haiku is my mantra for today. My name sounds better than yours though . Love Jan (nie)

I love the song this is based on. I think a Muslim that got banned by his religion did the Morning has broken song. Can't even think of his name right now! OH YES< Cat Stevens!! If you have not heard it,you have to google it!! I love how you were inspired by your Gaelic song.
