POEM : Answer to a child’s question

Do you ask what the birds say? The sparrow, the dove,The linner and thrush say, “I love and I love!”In the winter they’re silent - the wind is so strong;What is says, I don’t know, but it sings a loud song.

Do you ask what the birds say? The sparrow, the dove,
The linner and thrush say, “I love and I love!”
In the winter they’re silent - the wind is so strong;
What is says, I don’t know, but it sings a loud song.

But green leaves, and blossoms, and sunny warm weather,
And singing, and loving - all come back together.

But the lark is so brimful of gladness and love,
The green fields below him, the blue sky above,
That he sings, and he sings; and forever sings he-
“I love my Love, and my Love loves me!”
