Treasure Island

Blackbird


Blackbird, are you raven or crow?
It’s hard for me to tell.
Blackbird, are you raven or crow?
I only can tell when you yell.
If I hear caw-caw from your beak
it is then I know
that you are not the raven.
You are the blackened crow.

I imitate your cawing sound
and listen with my ear.
You hear my imitation
and answer me so clear.
I often think how marvelous it is
to chatter a bit with you.
If I only knew what we were saying
but alas, away you flew.
