There's a crow laughing in the tree outside

and a dove cooing on the house beside

the window they don't know I'm looking out

to discover what each their song's about


Perhaps they announce the coming rain

bless browning grass too long has lain

so dry beneath June's scorching sun

for birds, some say, know how to tell


Or perhaps they sing their joy of life

and grateful sing their endless praise,

as poets say stars and sun must also do,

to God Who gives their lives their breath


But I know the rocks would sing if I did not

and Im inclined to believe the birds do too

for though rain may come and rain may go

all creation knows that God is King forever
