No Bobolink—reverse His Singing


755

No Bobolink—reverse His Singing
When the only Tree
Ever He minded occupying
By the Farmer be—

Clove to the Root—
His Spacious Future—
Best Horizon—gone—
Whose Music be His
Only Anodyne—
Brave Bobolink—

    This poem shows how deep a thinker Emily is. Here she speaks out for the bird who's home is destroyed. She was an environmentalist before there ever was an environmental movement. (Report) Reply
