Live and Learn

Blossoms on every limb,
Trees completely leafed out,
Birds fly at every whim.
Four or  five kinds - about.

Nests are built and eggs are laid.
Soon little ones hatch out.
Parents catch bugs unafraid -
All to feed young, no doubt.

The weather warms - young ones grow.
Soon they will test their wings -
The cycle of life, we know.
Young will be learning things.

Creation's way, learned each year,
Is obvious to me.
Been there - done that without fear.
“I can do that”  you see.

The saying of old you’ve heard -
“Too soon old -  too late smart”
Mankind learns -  instinct’s for birds.
We can know God by heart.
