Do Birds Sing The Songs They Are?

The song I hear when I look at the sunset
Is the song of the birds
Not the song they sing
But the song they are
Quarter notes, half notes, whole notes
Perched on the musical staff of telephone wires that cross the sky outside my window

The song I hear when I look at you
Is the song of a thousand birds
Taking flight as one
