Lost Summer Song - Poem by Noreen Carden
He flew in with the first days of summer
His black wings shone.
His beautiful notes filled
my day with sweetness.
He brought his lady love for me to greet.
She being shy hid beneath my fuchsia
while he scratched in the clay by my feet
carrying treats for her in his yellow beak.
A tight little nest they fashioned.
Safe between the rose bush thorns.
I found her little body
Among the marigolds one morn.
Her love sat among the eaves
over and over his grieving
call rang out.
Next day I found him where
his love had lain
An eerie silence fell upon my patch.
His trilling voice extinguished
his broken heart forever stilled.
And four blue speckled eggs
that now will never hatch
