I Can Hear A Starling - Donald Falconer (Poetry)

In this beautiful, uplifting poem, Donald Falconer, evokes the marvel that is nature, and uses it's almost musical sounds to create the sweetest poetry.


I can hear a starling

calling for his darling -

a-singing in a tree,

a-singing for his mate.

True melodies are wild and free

and multiple as fate.


He sings a song,

a song for you,

to make a wish,

a wish come true.


I can hear a starling

calling for his darling -

a-singing in the night,

a-singing for his dear.

Sweet sounds are soft and light

when found inside a tear.


He sings a song,

a song for you,

to make a wish,

a wish come true.


I can hear a starling

calling for his darling -

a-singing in my ear,

a-singing to the sky.

Pure notes are deep and clear

when they tinkle and sigh.


He sings a song,

a song for you -

to make a wish,

a wish come true.
