The chirps of the woodland birds– trickle in thru the cracked window.
The sound is a welcome return– the outdoor’s noise carries lightly throughout the house.
Warbles, chirps, songs, and calls– break the late Winter silence.
Is this Spring?
Wonder the snowdrops with their head still bent.
If they venture further the might hear the answer
from the wing of the sparrow.
Til then, let the growth begin.
