“The birds are a chorus…clearly relatives of Mozart” — Jim Harrison

 

Okay, so not the crows.

Crows murder a song.

You should pardon the expression.

 

Definitely not jays, grackles, or hawks.

 

Nor seafaring birds of any kind.

 

Woodpeckers can belt out a solo now and then.

Cranes create a whoop-de-doo,

but nothing melodious bleeds through.

 

Eagles and buzzards just cannot carry a tune.

 

Finches, warblers, and Mockingbirds rock.

Robins have a voice, but a limited repertoire.

 

Barred Owls?  Maybe Bach.

 

 

This is part of “28 Days of Unreason”

based on prompts taken from poems

by Jim Harrison.
