Bird Poem



Have you seen this bird?

Sing on, sad bird is the title of a poem by James MacIntosh.

Sing on, sad bird, thou lonely whip-poor-will,
It soothes my grieving breast to hear thy lay;
Each tone that floats o’er forest, vale and hill
Bids Memory gaze upon a happier day.

When Love and Hope sat on this youthful brow
And smiling vowed that we should never part,
Sing on, sad bird, they’re dead and withered now,
Thy mournful notes are balm to this sad heart.

Sing on, sad bird
