Morning Melodies

Little winged creatures conversant in early morning song
Their time of humming some adventure long
Consistently chirping and piercing through dead of silence
A prayer might it be as their high notes commence
It continued so till break of dawn and then another one whistling
At a different pitch and then a third one,all melodiously praising
Their hour of twittering differentiate and vary
Patiently taking turns, seemed to tarry
Seven different songs all heard so far
Issuing from various species,at war
With silence as well as darkness of night.
But music of mirth seized at sunbeams bright
And then there seemed a lull before storm
Of human invasions in territories to perform
Tasks of daily existence .Hustling and bustling,
A crowd it seems to be quite maddening.
