The Geese Are Honking Overhead by Kenn Nesbitt

The geese are honking overhead.
The ducks are quacking loudly.
The crows are cawing up above.
The swans are snorting proudly.

The eagles cry. The hawks reply.
The blackbirds beat their wings.
The finches twitter in the sky
as every starling sings.

The pigeons coo. The owls hoo-hoo.
The robins chirp and cheep.
The sparrows whistle warmly while
the swifts and swallows peep.

I love the sound when they’re around;
so lively, wild, and free.
I simply wish that, as they passed,
they dropped no plops on me.
