Birds - An 1872 Poetic Expression

By Minnie Rodgers.
Sweet birds
Pretty birds
Made by God above,
Gentle birds
Mild birds
Made that we should love.
Sweet songs
Pretty songs
Are wafted thro' the air,
From little birds
Pure birds,
Resting over there.
Harm them not
Touch them not
They were made by the God of love,
So listen now
Hearken now
As their notes ascend to him above.
September 25, 1872. Orangeburg Times 1(32): 4.
