Background A Blackbird Sings  - Heading Bird Poems Performance Poems Spring/Summer Poems Try: The Blackbird's Story His Name Begins With B


By Josie Whitehead

A blackbird sings from on my roof

   As happy as can be,

And I would be so proud if I

   Sang such a song as he.


From high up on this pinnacle

   He feels that he is king,

Proclaiming to the whole wide world

   That soon it will be spring.


If people could but write the words

   Sang by this joyful bird,

They’d engrave upon this sunny day

   A human heartfelt word.


As humans, do we join the birds

   In our own special way?

Yes, through dance, music, pen and paint

   Our feelings are conveyed.
