Of all the birds that grace this earth
The finest one is small and sings,
And when she trills, my heart takes flight,
And in my mind, I too grow wings.
She trills her couplets and what`s more,
I marvel at her prowess so,
Extensive is her range of notes,
That with each song the volume grows.
How can one stay in deep despair?
Or worldly care engulf the whole?
When God has blessed with golden throat,
The bird that thrills my senses so?
Heaven`s song pours from her heart,
She glorifies this lovely world,
With sweetest song, she will impart,
God`s Own Blessing now unfurled.
