Blessings of the Birds

Bless the LORD, o my soul,
and forget not the One
who instructs your heartbeat
by the pulsing dance of starlings.

Bless the LORD, o my soul,
and forget not the One
who teaches your soul
in the stillness of the great blue heron.

Bless the LORD, o my soul,
and forget not the One
who calls you to rest
with the summer whippoorwill.

Bless the LORD, o my soul,
and forget not the One
who finds you hiding
though you like the junco lay low.

Bless the LORD, o my soul,
and forget not the One
who defends you
as a cardinal against intruders.

on Psalm 103:2-3
