Loony tune Vs birdie melody

I stopped singing
out of sheer boredom
of having heard no other voice at all

My sense of hearing
heightened by the cessation of noise(!)
perceived the music of a bird call

The tunes I sing
made by mere mortals can't keep
anyone the way this one had me in thrall

The little guy jumping
from branch to branch
sang so beautifully with his throat so small

What I would give
for that tune to be mine
God knows, I would give my all
