Blue bird, breathtaking by the creek
flutter your wings and swoop your beak
to take that beetle with a quick streak
and pass it on to the youthful meek.
Red bird a delightful song-first to be heard
Nested in the dense, tangles of vines and shrubs
Brilliant red, mesmerizing long tailed songbird
Cardinal calls of black faced, red-orange bills nudge
Red bird, blue bird who looks up to Thee
from northern tills and eastern hills
Fly the frigid winds and bright sunny days
of spring, summer, fall and winter craze
Blue birds of soft warble-beauty azure
gather in social flock-the female allure
Oh, the sweet melodious song of red birds,
a bright summer morn-the first to be heard!
Surrender life’s beauty, true red and blue
before the blasts of a busy day appears.
The red and the blue-the first to adorn
God’s creation and lift the forlorn.
