A bird overheard

Upon this path - where winter greets
a footpath walker's stride
a robin's voice affects me so
for what I hear implied.

He echoes language through the woods
in words no man can say.
Ensnaring thus my downcast soul
to turn my thoughts his way.

I wonder if his pensive plea
was borne from some unrest
for one departed from his life
now gone to heaven's nest?

Perhaps I'll never understand
orations from the glen -
but when my heart has been restored
perhaps I'll try again.

One of my last nature poems. Sorry for posting older poems. My mind has been blank for ages.
