Heard (Henderson), Josephine D.
LITTLE bird with tuneful throat,
Happy heart and silvery note --
Dainty beak and feathers yellow,
Thou art such a charming fellow.
Always merry, full of glee,
Seeming happy as can be --
All the house with music thrilling,
And my heart with pleasure filling.
Could I sing I'd vie with thee:
In sweet strains of melody
We would raise our voices high,
To praise our Maker in the sky.
