A Christmas of Crows, a Carol of Birds

A Christmas of crows, perched in the wind
on telephone wires, with black feathered wing;
their bleak carols over lonely fields bend,
“caw” for his coming, take flight for the king.

Fly finches, and sparrows, and small wrens,
with each of their melodies fluttering;
for with Advent a new year begins
and their bright carols and hymns we will sing.

There is also a traditional Catalan carol "Carol of the Birds."
