These birds —

They never sing false notes. Humans slip their tongues now and then.

Where did the birds learn to sing? How did they master the sounds without flaw?

Oye, Birds…. Would you tell her? Would you teach him?

To sing beautifully, to talk flawlessly?

Or, at least I using the real voice of theirs…. Be it chirping, be it crowing, be it cooing…. So be it, as long as it’s their real languages.
