PROMPT: Birdsong

3
Why do we listen to birds?

When we don’t know the song they sing? 

Hearing the sing-song murmur,

Like they’re singing it for us,

And why do birds keep singing? 

When they know no one will really understand? 

The chirp, the singing, their tune,

The thrum, of the music in their throats,

The chirp, and whisper, with the cry of pain,

The hope, the solution, the free- 

The freedom to sing to the world.

    An interesting thought.
    Scientifically, their songs are their own ways of expressing themselves, for example there are pair calls, mating calls, warning calls, etc.
