Greeting from a bird one morning

Dr Abe V Rotor

738 DZRB AM, 8 to 9 evening class, Monday to Friday
Perperroka (Ilk) perches on the rear mirror of a car

She came singing sweetly one morning
     after the cock had done his part;
she came all the way from the far North
     to share her language and her art.

Greetings, I said, what is your message?   
     she said something very strange 
half Russian, half Chinese, I supposed  
     from Siberia over the range.

Ah, you came with the High, the cold wind 
     of the amihan blowing hard; 
she said something again, and this time 
     half bird, half human, to be heard.

I'm a traveler too, on rolling wheels
     on narrow road and wide street;
while yours is the sky and all below it,
     yet choose to drop by and to greet. ~
