Have you not heard
The mocking bird,
Dare tell me true?
Might it be you
She was sent for,
A heav'nly mentor?

What is the word
From this, a bird,
For solely you,
If you get through
Language barriers,
Of avian carriers?

Only a trill?
Angel's song fill
Your very soul?
What is the role
You'll play at last,
When this part cast?

As we have heard
The throaty bird
Everyone knows,
The spirit shows
Passions affected
Being selected!

Think not absurd
That this occurred,
Nature's preview,
In wonder, too...
Mysterious ways
His will displays!!
