Theme: Longing



With winter on its way,
Mockingbirds left yesterday
For their southern stay,
And won't return till May.
Without their mocking,
Trees aren't rocking;
There's a chill in the air,
And I'm well aware
I'll have to live somehow
For several months now
Without their singing,
The joy they were bringing.
