I HAVE NOT HEARD THE CUKOO YET

BUT SOMEHOW I BET

HE IS NOT FAR AWAY

THEY SAY HE WILL BE IN THE BOG TODAY

I WILL GO AND  SEE

IF HE WILL SING FOR ME

Cuckoo (Cuculus canorus) Juvenile feed by an Eurasian Reed-warbler ...Cuckoos and Honey guides | Dusky's Wonders

I KNOW THAT SHE WILL LAY HER EGG

IN THE WARBLERS NEST AND BEG

AND THEIR OWN YOUNG WILL COME

AND HE WILL KILL EACH AND EVERY ONE

HE WILL THROW ALL THEIR CHICKS OUT

AND CALL FOR FOOD WITH A SHOUT

EXAUSTED THEY WILL FEED THIS BIRD OF PREY

UNTIL HE SHAKES HIS WINGS AND FLIES AWAY

AND KNOWING

WHAT I KNOW

I WANT TO HEAR HIM SING

FOR HE IS THE VOICE OF SPRING
