Lyrics

Backyard Birds
L. Tanno

The backyard birds will come today
We’ll spread the seed to assure they’ll stay
Then we’ll watch in wonder at their color display
Fly me

We trim the hedge to save the rose
We sow the bed in neat and even rows
But their birdsong summons life to grow
Fly me

And how their beauty made us stare
Precious messengers with light to share

A feather dusts the blanket snow
A token left for us before they go
And life continues in perfect prose
Fly me

And how their beauty made us stare
Precious messengers with light to share
