Why Sing?

What does a bird mean
When it calls from each branch
Singing from tree to tree
In the forest?
Described by the poet as song
And territorial marking
By the naturalist;
The bird's true intent
Can only be known by the bird itself.
There is no exegis for true song.

Though we may never
Know the why,
We might enjoy
A cry in the woods.
