February Birds

In February's chill, beneath the frosty veil,
Where whispers of spring are faintly heard,
There, amidst the silence, a hopeful tale,
Unfolds in the song of February birds.

With feathers fluffed against the cold,
They perch on branches, bare and bold,
Their melodies a promise, sung and sold,
Of warmer days that soon will unfold.

No vibrant hues mark their attire,
Yet, in their voices, burns a fire,
A testament to nature's choir,
That thrives, despite the ice and mire.

Through gray skies, they take their flight,
Small beacons of impending light,
Their presence a comforting sight,
Against the winter's longest night.

So listen close when birdsong fills the air,
For in their notes, there's solace to be found,
A reminder that life persists, fair and square,
Even when snow covers the ground.
Small birds perched on the bare branches of a tree
Small birds perched on the bare branches of a tree
