Cactus Wren Song

On top of a Saguaro
all covered in spines
sang a brown cactus wren
in a song that was fine.

This little brown bird
flew to the Palo Verde tree,
his loud trilling song
was quite pleasing to me.

     Do bird songs cheer you?  I heard this one at the end of my morning walk.  I was just coming back up the hill to my house when I saw the bird sitting on top of the tallest Saguaro singing his heart out.  It gave me a real lift and I felt like if that little bird can be happy that it is a sunny day, I too, should be happy for today.  I hope you are happy today.  Can you write a list poem today about all the things that make you happy?
