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.
