59. The Day is Full of Birds

The weather is finally warm enough to keep the windows open at night. My favorite part of open windows is being awakened to birdsong in the mornings.

I always think of the first track on side two of Kate Bush’s Aerial when I hear the birds singing in the morning and say, to myself — or out loud is someone is in the room, “The day is full of birds”.

Listen to Prelude

Mummy…
Daddy…
The day is full of birds
Sounds like they’re saying words.

If you’ve not checked out Kate’s website, do so now. Especially if you like birds.
