The Black Bird
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.
