One Bird Sings

One Bird Sings

As one bird sings, and soon
The glade is full of many finer songs,
So I, with my frail voice, and shaky tune,
Will hope that it to finer choir belongs

For though I may not understand a thing,
I know that all can, all could
All should
Sing


 

[Frankly based on “To Dr. Hake”, from Songs of Travel by Robert Louis Stevenson]
