Sweet summer sound

This is for the Secret Keeper’s weekly writing prompt. The words to use are:


I’ve taken a few liberties with the words, but you get the general idea.


A sweet sound fills the summer air,

I know to ware,

All movement stilled,

With beauty filled.


The trill of birdsong on the breeze,

Drifts through the trees,

So unaware,

Of my sharp stare.


All ears, I listen ’neath the tree.

I cannot see:

Enough to hear,

His song so clear.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
