The Black Bird

Updated on April 24, 2017

High atop the tree on flimsy branches, you make your perch

Hidden from view of those below

But eye level at my window seat

You are not appreciated by far and a nuisance is what they say you are

But I've looked into the piercing eyes of the blackbird as it sits

What others would see were they, me

Is the beauty that is you a mate for life

You choose to be

A prankster to my chagrin

For as you whistle your pretty tune

You mimic the popinjay, bluebird, and robin too

You chase the magpie's all away

To preserve my garden's bounty

The blackbird you see is the most misunderstood of all it's like creatures

My face you see but only once yet you will know me for a lifetime hence

You congregate and as do Humans to protect your flock, brood, and your lifetime mate.

Yes, the blackbird you see is the most misunderstood of all like creatures

My home the trees surrounding hence offers food to the wee birds. Of nature, we must be protective and create a balance.
