*****When Walking, in your mornings, Listen to the mockingbird's songs*****

Today, I saw a Mockingbird,
It, broke my heart,
She will, never soar again,
From her perch, she'll never part.

Deep inside, my soul aches,
For that Mockingbird,
Will sing no more,
Her songs, won't greet,
My mornings, ever so sweet.

Today, I saw, A Mockingbird,
She laid still,
On a bed, of lovely flowers,
Breathe again, she never will.

The songs, she sang
Were like a symphony,
That filled the morning air,
As, I walked today, silence was there.

I was, deeply sadden,
My heart ached,
And my soul silent,
For today, I saw, A dead Mockingbird.

William it is wonderful that you feel this way. I remember as a very young person, that I used to shoot the Illinois protected bird (the Robin) with my bee-gun and they didn't die right away until the poison in the bee bee killed them. How cruel this was. As I grew, I slowly learned how bad the things were I did ... and finally the wrongness set in ... but I shall always feel
the guilt of the kill for doing the wrong things I deed. There may be forgiveness for this but I cannot forget the bad things I have done. They are always with me. But the good disappears from my memory so quickly. Bill Murray
