by H. J. Pearl (flourished 1931-41?)

Sounds
Language: English 
I heard a sound in the night.
Sighing.
Crying.
Was it the wind I heard?
Was it the cry of a bird?
Or was it the old day dying?

I heard a sound in the morn.
Rejoicing.
Voicing.
The lilt of a note
In a robin's throat.
And I knew that a day was born.
