"Chirpings"

       
   
1.
The baby swallow chirps "Chee-chee!"
And only chirps no song has he
But "chip! chip chip! chip chee!"
And yet that chirp is sweet and dear
To parents birds that hover near,
"Chip chip! chip chip! chip chee.
Chip chip! chip chip! chip chee!"
       
   
2.
Like birds that have but little art,
And yet can please the parents' heart
With "chip! chip chip! chip chee,"
We children o'er and o'er repeat
Our simple chirp with meaning sweet
"We love you, Mother dear,
We love you father dear."
