The Woodpecker Call

On my way to The Fellowship Hall

I heard a call yet could not see anything at all.

The high-pitched notes and trills

Gave me a thrill

I looked and looked and could not find it

Out of nowhere it appeared high up on top of the tree

Its black body and red crown so impressive

A solitary bird from above telling me

A stranger you may be but not for me

A sound so sweet to my ears

That brought me to stand still and know how it feels.
