    i love it… you're absolutely right… and certainly the song birds make a more pleasant sound to awake to than the alarm

  5. Andrea Says:

    Well done! I perfectly know this feeling….

    When I read it, I read the word "alarm" like a fire alarm…which gave it a bit of a twist. Funny what connotations can do to you…

    A lovely way to appreciate and celebrate all our senses. My husband is very sad because he has gradually lost much of his hearing and can't hear birdsong any more even with his hearing aids.

    the repetition of the word- birdsong- is especially good in this… it is good in itelf, in reference to the birds… but because alarms being repetitive- often double toned, I like it even more! It really makes me hear the alarm clock ringing… and birds chirping at the same time…and makes me smile!
