I woke up suddenly under a tree

To a strange and eerie cacophony,

That became a beautiful symphony.

Sonorous, staccato, soprano, bass,

Each separate woodnote had its place,

And each brought a satisfied smile to my face.

A dazzling dawn chorus at its very best,

Each note scintillated and caressed,

I lay back smiling; I felt blessed.
