ANSWER TO A CHILD'S QUESTION, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Do you ask what the birds say? The sparrow, the dove
Last Line: "I love my love, and my love loves me!"
Variant Title(s): What The Birds Say;birds;the Language Of Birds
Subject(s): Birds; Love; Spring

DO you ask what the birds say? The Sparrow, the Dove,
The Linnet and Thrush say, "I love and I love!"
In the winter they're silent -- the wind is so strong;
What it says, I don't know, but it sings a loud song.
But green leaves, and blossoms, and sunny warm weather,
And singing, and loving -- all come back together.
But the Lark is so brimful of gladness and love,
The green fields below him, the blue sky above,
That he sings, and he sings; and for ever sings he --
"I love my Love, and my Love loves me!"
