    Morning Chorus
    by Zheljko Stanimirovic

    Twittering, warbling and chirping, and more,
    Croaking and laughter, and that is not all,
    All kinds of voices that in birds are known
    They give out in chorus, just before the dawn.

    The morning chorus rings through the wood
    And the suburban neighborhood,
    The meadows, the marshes, the trees facing lawn
    Vibrate with music just before the dawn.

    Twittering, warbling and chirping, and more,
    Croaking and laughter, and that is not all,
    All kinds of voices that in birds are known
    They give out in chorus, just before the dawn.

    Some sing from places where noone can hear,
    From boulders in streambeds -- you have to be near.
    From city buildings sing those who donít fear
    Or from the bushes of prickly pear.

    Twittering, warbling and chirping, and more,
    Croaking and laughter, and that is not all,
    All kinds of voices that in birds are known
    They give out in chorus, just before the dawn.
