What is the sound I hear on the wind?

It´s the song bird,

Finding fruit fallen, ripened & skinned.

 

What is the laughter I hear in the sun?

It´s the song bird,

Happily free & gay, singing just for fun.

 

What´s the poem I hear in beams of the moon?

It´s the song bird,

Serenading midnight nocturnal & ebony tune.

 

What´s the song I hear above earth´s war zone?

It´s the song bird,

Giving thanks to God for the height of his home.

 

What´s the whisper I hear on the breathing breeze?

It´s the song bird,

Playing among feathery leaves of the dancing trees.

 

What´s the ancient story I hear in every living voice?

It´s the song bird,

 

He who daily sings because he has no other choice.

 

What´s the distant wailing I hear with growing rage?

It´s the song bird,

His echoing tears dripping on the bars of his golden cage.
