Gifts of the mountain

Just before first light the birds waken

Robin,wren and meadowlark

Sparrow,chickadee and blue-jay

Singing their morning song mixed together a melody

Chipmunk and squirrel chatter and quarrel over pine

Gopher chants in the rhyme

Doe lifts her head and sniff the air

Hare twitches his nose into clover sweet

Then the splendor of sun bringing up her sleepy head.

Painting the sky in baby blue-pink oranges and reds

Gifts that I have seen in the early morning mountain light
