“Early One Morning”

Early one morning, before the sun had risen,
I heard a bluebird in the fields gaily sing.
“South winds are blowing,
Green grass is growing,
We come to herald the merry Spring.”

One autumn afternoon, just as the sun was setting,
I heard a bluebird on a tree pipe a song,
“Farewell! We’re going,
Cold winds are blowing,
But we’ll be back when the days grow long.”
