via Daily Prompt: Trill


The quivering sound
The reverberating trill
The birds upon high
They call out at will.

The squirrels and the chipmunks
Asleep quietly
Until the morning
When they wait patiently.

The deer in the forest
The rabbits, the bears
All of them listening
All with such care.

For the tweeting to begin
The hooting to cease
Time for the creatures
To awaken from sleep.

Bees busy buzzing
Birds flying by
Theyโ€™re up and about
While sleeping dogs lie.

Ants begin marching
Building their nests
Worms underground
Those small little pests.

Like mosquitos and flies
All hear the birds singing
Itโ€™s time to wake up
A new dayโ€™s beginning.
