Welcome Song

Before the sirens from the nearby police station or hospital. Before the freeway hums a dull  purr of hurried traffic and the piercing horns give their warning on local streets. Before the kids at the corner come out to play. Before the neighbor’s dog wakes.

And on Sundays, before the church bells guide their followers to worship.

If you wake early enough, and stir softly enough inside your warmly-lit home, the urban birds will sing the most beautiful welcome song to the sun.
