The Whippoorwill

The lonesome song of the whippoorwill
Breaks the silence of the night so still
With exquisite voice he shows his skill
His want for love he pleads to fulfill

His sweet call echos for miles around
Yearning for his heart to be unbound
Rarely is heard such a lonesome sound
Her call back to him means he was found

Building a strong nest for them to stay
The finest twigs for her he does lay
Inside the nest a layer of soft hay
His lady love is now on her way

Now together they sing their sweet song
No longer lonesome, here she belongs
Before he knew a chick came along
This new family for him can’t be wrong

When whippoorwills call to find their love
They know it comes to them from above
Open your heart to falling in love
Filled with peace like the wings of a dove.
