Birdsong

Hide away, hide away

in the green holly tree,

while the ice and the wind

whip you raw.

 

Hide away, hide away,

build your nest in the leaves,

make a pocket of home

in the frost

 

Hide away, hide away,

don’t you fly from the cold.

Sing your songs while the snow

plays the drums.

 

Hide away, hide away,

for the season grows old,

and the snowdrops will melt,

sprouting up.
