The bird sings no matter what the weather brings James Downs




The bird sings no matter what the weather brings
The bird sings no
Matter
What the weather brings

He finds a way to say exactly what he wants to say in so few notes

If life were to go
Away
Right now in a whirlwind

He would keep trilling out his sound until he could make it no more

It matters little to
Him
If we do not understand

Because he is really only speaking his soul out across the land


And if we tried to
Do that
Ourselves…people would wonder
-
Does that person realize we heard them the first twenty times

The bird knows who he
Is
And that is what he says

I am I am I am I am I am I am I am I am I am I am I am I am
And so he is
