The Bird's Song


I heard a bird sing-
could it be the promise of Spring?
He left me long ago,
he left me cold-
took flight at sunset
like lost love
away to rainbow skies-
my heart withered
in the absence of his sunshine.

And now he's back
tapping on my window,
teasing me with musical notes

I imagine Chopin in the garden
playing a prelude-
you and I slow dancing
like yellow daffodils,
and my heart blooms again
it blooms every time
I hear a bird sing,
it is your voice I hear-
could it be the promise of Spring?


Today, I heard a bird sing outside my window, and it inspired my poem! It is still singing as I write. The pictures were taken earlier in Winter when I saw a flock of birds take flight at sunset. Isn't the birds V-formation amazing? Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend! xx

  1. This is wonderful, Loredana, and such a coincidence! I just heard a bird this morning. It has been what seems like a very long time since I've heard them. It really must mean that spring is coming.

    You have a wonderful weekend, my friend!

  5. Lovely poem, Loredana! I heard a bird singing the other day and felt the promise of spring as well. Even as we still have snow on the ground with single digit temperatures! I hope you've been staying warm this winter. It's been a rough one for you guys!

  16. In places where there is a well-defined winter, spring and the first signs of it must be incredibly welcome.

  20. The coming of Spring comes in forms that create the curiosity of wanting to know whether yes or no! Birds have their own ways of knowing and if one cares to observe it tells a lot. Very true Loredana!
