Have You Ever Heard a Bird Sing?

Have you ever heard a bird sing,
A long, long way from home?
Its song is like a breath of Spring,
On its long journey's roam.

Have you ever heard a TV grrr,
To fill up the lonesome hours?
Its incessant crowing a droning lure,
Which sirenly powers.

Have you ever heard a radio blaring?
With all your vacuuming and running,
No space is left for quiet caring,
And no time for one day's sunning.

Can you hear a bird sing,
A dove, a lark, a sparrow true?
For God's own Spirit would bring,
A quiet voice to have His rule.
Cooing, wooing He bids us, still,
If only we could do His will.
For to hear a birdie sing,
You must create the time.
Turn off your vacuuming and drumming,
And you may even create a rhyme,
To help you in your funning.

You haven't heard a bird sing,
Because you are afraid,
Of the peace contentment brings,
When the peaceful prayer of dawn is laid.

You must have heard a bird sing.
For God is found in tender breezes,
Where He flirts and plays,
For Jesus',
Voice doeth truest ring,
In each and every quiet day.
