bittersweet birdsong

• gone is the sweet and innocent baby birdsong

• out of the nest to the sky they fly

• to try their wings for one last goodbye

• silence now speaks loudest from the empty nest

• as a bittersweet sigh reverberates from the hearts of two

• who gave them life

• and now know restbird-birds-animal-bill
