I Woke Up To A Lullaby

I woke up to a lullaby
The birds sang a song for me
They sang their hearts out all the while
Dancing on the maple tree

Each bird sang a different song
That melted into one
A song full of promises
For the day that’s just begun

They sang of sorrow
Of happiness and mirth
The sang of marriage
And of birth

They sang of people laughing
And of them crying
They sang of sickness
They sang of dying

This little song
They sang for me
Made me think
Made me free

A beautifully envisioned poem shedding light on the intricacies of life and their aftermath. Thanks for sharing it here.
An interesting observation poem, restaurants are a beehive of many different people and groups, Pinter sees that there is something beautiful in these people, randomly coming and going for a fraction of a day to eat. The ending is a bit aloof to me but its still poignant. Lovely work
tears for its transience, likely.
Don't understand why anyone would shed tears back home. A nice poem though only a suspense created at the end.
As they can possibly be! ! Thanks for sharing.
