Birds announcing seasons and times

Slowly the winter cold seeps away
Small blossoms bring the hope of spring
joyful birds serenade the day
the soft calls of the burchell's coucal
makes us look forward to the first rainfall

In the dark velvet nights
stars shine so bright
with the cheerful night song
harmonizing plovers and thick-knees
and far off in the distance we hear so clear
the small nightjar gracefully calling
"Good Lord, deliver us". 

Spring melt into summer
more resonantly declared
by Woodland Kingfishers with pretty turquoise flare.
The sweltering hot days cooled down 
by scarily impressive thunderstorms

The soft pastel sunrise of a new day
announced by cheerful chattering guinea fowl
