birdie 1where exactly do the birdies go

the ones who’ve stayed despite the snow…

they greet me every morning with their beautiful songs

and they’re absent in the evening, again until dawn

in the spring they go to the nest apartments up in the trees

in the summer their condos are covered with leavesbirdie 2

in the fall you can still see their homes here and there

but where do they go when the trees are bare

and there’s no nothing to see of their homes anymore

do they keep twigs and twine and things in store

birdie 3just where oh where do the birdies go

i am so  happy they’re here to brighten many a cold morn

their colors are bright and their songs are so lovely

but where do they all go to stay all warm and cuddly
