Well the birds still sing It's like they don't know And it seems kind of insensitive But it gives me hope And the flowers bloom And the sun still shines And it seems somehow significant In this crazy times So I try not to worry And I try hard to pray And I'm thankful that I'm not alone in these lockdown days And I try to be grateful And I'm finding my way And I'm trusting that you walk with me in these lockdown days Well the seasons change See it in the sky And I know that I am changing too And the days go by There are things I miss There are things I don't Some things we will return to And some things we won't So I try not to worry And I try hard to pray And I'm thankful that I'm not alone in these lockdown days And I try to be grateful And I'm finding my way And I'm trusting that you walk with me in these lockdown days Well the birds still sing I wonder if they know...

about

I wrote this during the Covid-19 epidemic, and the associated lockdown in the UK. I was processing the experience: The sunny days, the fact that the birds seem to be singing louder in spite of all that's going on in the world.
