I dare to dream a dream of dawn
When morning birds on branches yawn
And chirp a cheery, "Get up!" song
With not one noisy note that's wrong!
They sing an endless song each day
As we work on...we go our way
And think no thought of these that sing
A welcome song to welcome Spring.
Sunset comes--they sing their song again!
I listen to their last refrain--
A cheep, a chirp, a twerp, a tweet...
A song that birds can sing so sweet!
