Bird Song

The volume of the sound out of proportion
to the volume of the bird. But why compare
a thing that's made to sing with what we are?
Innocence is ignorance, but caution!
Scientific 'fact' can be distortion.
Our comprehension of the world, so far
as it exists is good, but be aware,
over simplifying, is reduction.
to seek a single motive in a bird
for giving voice or seeking to express
some avian thought is narrow, quite absurd.
They are not human, but one must confess
they are inclined to speak and to be heard;
we can't translate, it isn;t us whom they address.
