Morning On The Water

The birds are singing shyly,
The water's almost still,
The sun dances on the surface,
With a slight and sudden trill.

A hummingbird flies past,
With quick and sudden grace,
The other birds still singing,
No voice takes on their place.

A heron swoops on past,
Scoops up a beam of light,
The sun still slowly dancing,
A bid takes sudden flight.

Clouds are passing overhead,
The horizon is sky blue,
The world is calm and still,
'Til a boat comes rolling through.

Now the water shatters,
Birds that sang, now not a sound,
The sun is dancing faster,
But peace cannot be found.
