A Flock Of Roost Bound Starlings

They turn and twist in circles as they fly
A flock of roost bound starlings in the darkening sky
For the watching eyes quite an amazing sight
For to see them as they twist and turn in flight
The starlings in numbers seem to multiply
And the flocks do grow bigger as the Seasons go by
Dark feathered mimics who have a scratchy type of song
Once seen and once heard one cannot get them wrong
Introduced by humans to many countries starlings are widely known
With the passing of time the flocks in numbers have grown
The males in their breeding colors of a dotted dark purple sheen
In the full sunlight quite beautiful to be seen
They live in large noisy flocks and of them i can say
That they are birds i do hear and do see every day.
