They say they sing to them but
I had no idea when they really sing.
Neither I know anyone who bothers
whether the birds sing or do not.
Once or twice whenever I tried
to concentrate on birds
I could not discover much reason why
a bird should be that happy to sing.
I still don’t know why but I felt it last night
or when it was almost dawn
the birds really sang so sweetly outside
that once I woke up from my sleep
and went to sleep again very soon mesmerized.
