lonesome blackbird

there’s gold in the heart

that he wears on his sleeve,

and silver on his tongue,

serenading endlessly:

conk-la-ree! conk-la-ree!

(is there no one for me?)

  1. Delightful poem and pic Michael. My daughter likes these birds so much she bought the ringtones of their calls whenever her Dad phones from northeastern Ontario. Her ringtone for me is the eagle’s call. Quite different calls.
