“I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station,

Through which God speaks to us,

If we will only tune in.”


George Washington Carver



It was a lovely March morning in our backyard

When my canines and I, all paused in our tracks

We heard loud, distant, trumpeting, from the skies

Something was coming, and it was coming very fast


We would not have to wait very long at all now

A huge flock of birds, was now heading our way

I grabbed my binoculars and scanned the heavens

By Nature, we had been graciously blessed this day


They were soon soaring right overhead, riding the thermals

With their distinctly large wingspans, and very exuberant calls

The second migrating flock of the magnificent Sand Hill Cranes

Both canine and human now stood transfixed, marveling at them all


It had only been yesterday, when the first huge flock had flown over

I have always been grateful that their migratory route passes our way

What a glorious, magical experience, for both my canines and myself

What a heavenly way for Nature to Trumpet in Spring’s Glorious Days


Besides these magnificent migrating Cranes

Pelicans, Killdeer, Meadowlarks, and Loons

Are all now, already winging their way northward

The heavens and marshes are alive with their tunes


Prairie Chickens and Grouse are starting to dance

Wild Turkeys are now gobbling so very joyously

Tiny Owlets are being born, Ospreys are fishing

Spring has once again returned, so magnificently


I believe the Creator has always spoken to us

Through His many glorious animals and birds

And I, for one, have always been very grateful

That I learned long ago, to appreciate, His words


And These Words Were Truly Wondrous Today,

Spring’s Awakening, Was Definitely Underway.

Isn't spring exciting when you can watch the migration of so many kinds of birds! I don't get to see many but at least a few,and I always look for it to happen. Hope you have a glorious spring Pee Weeeee;-)

Such an awakening! Beautiful lessons of the natural world too within this uplifting poem!
Reviewed by Ronald Hull 3/17/2012
These birds, the surviving dinosaurs, are so important in more ways than spring. It certainly would be a shame if we no longer saw them like when they were nearly wiped out by human greed and misunderstanding.
