The Bluebird Song

Dedicated to Evelyn Cooper,
founder of the Louisiana Bayou Bluebird Society

 

 Bluebird, sing your precious song

Telling us the cold will soon be gone.

Soft and sweet I hear the sound

Of the music that makes love abound.

 

Bluebird, fly from tree to tree

With your shining blue for all to see.

Find a place to build your nest

Where your tiny eggs can grow their best.  

(Chorus:) 

When our lives are sad and filled with fear,

We can think of you, the bluebird dear,

And when we are hurt and things go wrong,

You can share with us the bluebird song.   

 

Bluebird, love your family true.

As your babies hatch with life anew.

Bring them food to make them grow

Till we see them flying to-and-fro.

(Repeat Chorus)

Bluebird, teach your children well

All the summer stories you can tell.

Happy times for bugs you search

And the willow tree you love to perch.

(Repeat Chorus)

Bluebird soon must fly away

As the sky above begins to gray.

Wintertime will find you gone

Till again we hear the bluebird song.
