Night Bird - Poem by Eloida Capuno

he comes late at night
when all is quiet
and i am still awake
his songs are sad,
mournful like a dirge

who is he singing for
in a tree by my window
he nightly calls
as if he knew the longings
i behold

he sings as i lay
myself in bed
until sleep beckons
morning comes
and he is gone

i await him tonight
to sing for me again
the lullaby of my life
a sad and mournful dirge
of a funeral march
