“Some birds are poets and sing all summer.” Henry David Thoreau

Many Songs

As the sun rises so too the 
many songs that theme the
changes of the hours,,
from the calling of the sun
to its setting down and 
sister moon of course,
the birds o'clock is sometimes 
welcome, sometimes not, 
depending on my mood,
but the best of theme songs
not ever so loud comes the
call as blue wrens dance 
the yard with shards of colur
and such happy sounds.

That said, our theme song is an old hit from the 80s by the Aussie band Mental As Anything titled “If You Leave Me Can I come too?” 😊

  10. I had to seek out Mental as Anything on YouTube, having never heard of them before. Now, I’m totally distracted–in the best possible way. Oh, I like your poem, too!

  11. Oh! this reminds me of the traditional folk music. People with different background sings those songs depending on their work, time of the year and time of the day.
    Life is beautiful.
