The Bluebird Song
Dedicated to Evelyn Cooper,
founder of the Louisiana Bayou Bluebird Society
Bluebird, sing your precious song
Telling us the cold will soon be gone.
Soft and sweet I hear the sound
Of the music that makes love abound.
Bluebird, fly from tree to tree
With your shining blue for all to see.
Find a place to build your nest
Where your tiny eggs can grow their best.
When our lives are sad and filled with fear,
We can think of you, the bluebird dear,
And when we are hurt and things go wrong,
You can share with us the bluebird song.
Bluebird, love your family true.
As your babies hatch with life anew.
Bring them food to make them grow
Till we see them flying to-and-fro.
Bluebird, teach your children well
All the summer stories you can tell.
Happy times for bugs you search
And the willow tree you love to perch.
Bluebird soon must fly away
As the sky above begins to gray.
Wintertime will find you gone
Till again we hear the bluebird song.
