A Choir in the Trees by Donal Mahoney

Choir in the Trees
by Donal Mahoney
 
I turn the porch light on
because it’s dark when I go out
to find the morning paper.
 
It’s still dark when I start back 
but when I’m on the porch I reach 
inside a little bin for bird seed 
 
and spread it along the banister. 
That’s when the choir starts to sing.
It’s too dark to see the birds in trees
 
watching me spread their seed 
but they thank me with a lovely hymn
from the morning tabernacle choir.

I heard a choir in the trees just yesterday, while walking 🙂

  1. what a beautiful poem Mr. Mahoney.
    reminds me of spring… wish it would soon get here in Canada
    today snow, snow, and more snow.
