All Our Friends

Look at all our friends
So many of them
Each and every limb
Sparrows, swallows, wrens
How lucky are we?
That from my loveseat
Our eyes get to see
Feathers, wings, and beaks
That with our own ears
Sonation do we hear
Chirping, calling, song
All afternoon long
When moon relieves the sun
The owls and nightjars come
Eyes for us in the eve
En garde while we're asleep
Return us in the morn
Renewed, refreshed, reborn
To start another day
With blackbirds, robins, jays
