Up with the robins—
pre-dawn musical from the
nearby apple tree.

A soft rain at dawn
silenced the songbird chorus
in the apple tree.

Heard my first robin —
“Time to wake up!” he sang from
the old apple tree.

Dawn chorus woke me —
chirps, cheeps, buzzing, and whistles
start just after four.

I’m up before dawn —
spring sounds — robins, grackles,
and the dripping rain.

Day started out warm —
peepers (yes, peepers!) sang out
in the light dawn rain.

Up early and hear
the birds as they awaken
and sing before dawn.
