.4. Bye Bye Blackbird

Blackbird, blackbird beak of yellow
Plumage shines like jet
Singing mornings saying hello
Have I not fed you yet?

Blackbird, blackbird gone out dating
Strutting round your mate
She seems shy, or is she waiting
On my garden gate

Blackbird, blackbird there’s another
You know that can’t be right
Watch or he’ll make her a mother
Now you’ll have to fight

Blackbird, blackbird you’re the victor
You’ve chased off all the rest
She seems keen for life beginnings
So hurry now and find your nest

    What a lovely nature poem, so well presented. Brings the poor old blackbird to the fore and opens up his lifestyle beautifully. They are fascinating to watch.

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
